Re: Firefox Alerts - How to Gain Focus?

Steve Griffiths

I tried the Alt + S and that saved my password. Then I updated it, and Alt + U worked for that too. So thanks, Bill!

Hi, Brian. The alert only lasts for about five seconds. After that, there is no way to get to the alert. Unfortunately, you must listen carefully to what the alert says.


For example, If it says, Do you want Firefox to Save this password, the combo is ALT plus S.


If it says, Do you want Firefox to Allow the use of this plugin, the combo is ALT plus A.


If it says Do you want Firefox to Remember this location, the combo is ALT plus R.


The key words are Save, Allow, and Remember. If you hear one of these words, the combo is ALT plus the first letter of that Key Word.

Hello All,

            When Firefox pops up an alert upon loading a webpage, e.g., "Do you want to share your location?," I have not found the way to gain focus on it to deal with the checkbox(es) and button.  JAWS reads it, but it's not got focus there afterward.  How do I get there to deal with the alert?
