Hi, Marty. In order for you to use JAWS with Firefox 60 and up, you need the latest version of JAWS, which is JAWS 2018. JAWS 16, 17, and 18 are incompatible with Firefox 60 and up. These versions of Firefox are called Quantum. They contain a version of Sandbox which causes Firefox not to be able to react with JAWS versions earlier than 2018. They had to do some intensive reworking of JAWS to get it to function properly with the newer versions of Firefox. In order for you to use Firefox with JAWS 18, you would need to install an earlier version of Firefox ESR. I will provide a couple of links to the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Firefox ESR in case you wish to downgrade your version of Firefox.
Firefox ESR 52, English US 32-bit:
Firefox ESR 52, English US 64-bit:

HI, I am new to this group and am having a similar issue with JAWS and Firefox. When I open Firefox, I get a message saying that Tabs are incompatible with my adaptive software or my version of Firefox. I have installed JFW 18 and Firefox 62. There is no problem using NVDA and Firefox. What is going on here? Is it a Windows problem? I am still running Windows 7.
Love in Christ
Hi. Another thing I have found is that, if you uninstall Firefox, old profiles are left behind. So, I had to go into
and delete all the old profiles which were left behind.

I was wondering if you have noticed with firefox 61, and now 62 that jfw locks up or I guess firefox locks up all of the time, it happens randomly, but it happens so much that I made chrome my default web browser.
Has anyone experienced this?
