VFO is what Freedom Scientific’s new name is. Actually the full name is The VFO Group, and their new page is:
VFO stands for Vector, Freedom Scientific, Optelec. Here is what their page says.
They are a merger of
Ai Squared, Freedom Scientific, Optelec and The Paciello Group

Subject: Re: A weird Google Chrome problem
Seems to be a Chrome issue since I have the same result when I’m using NVDA instead of Jaws.
I definitely would like to report the issue but sorry for this newbie question: what is VFO please?
In the meantime, many thanks to Francisco who advised me to try Firefox ESR. I did not know this release and it will definitely help me wait for a better solution.
Many thanks for your fast advice. Have a nice day. Chris D

I can reproduce it by following the link you gave. I suggest reporting it to VFO. If it’s a JAWS issue, they can fix it. If it’s a Google Chrome issue, Google can fix it (and they recently – within the last year or so – employed another top accessibility engineer to work on Chrome, in addition to the excellent expertise they already had).
Since I was getting more and more frustrated with Firefox, especially when it was upgraded to 57, I decided to replace it with Google Chrome.
With my new Jaws 2018, it is working fairly well except on this site:
This site describes a light open-source piece of software dedicated to message exchanges among small objects.
Problem: When I click this link to open it, Jaws begins to read it ok but as soon as I click a link within this page, (for instance the “documentation” link), Jaws gets stuck forever on the new page title.
Did anyone else notice such an annoying behavior please? Is there a way to fix it?
BTW, I am using Chrome 64-bit version 63.0.3239.132 on a Windows 7 64-bit Entreprise Edition computer.
Many thanks in advance for any advice. Have a nice day. Chris D
