Hi Marty,

Chrome actually works really well with jaws 18,
I haven’t had any issues with it at all. I
also find chrome a lot faster than most other
browsers, which is one of the main reasons I use it.

Paul, How does Crome work with JAWS 18? I am
using Firefox version 52 and JAWS 18 and it
works, but I have run into problems with some
web pages and want a different browser and you
say that you use Crome as your main browser with Firefox as a back up.

Love in Christ

Hi Bill,

I had the same issue the other day ,I’m only
running jaws 18, so looks like that’s what
the issue must be. In all fairness I actually
use chrome as my main browser, but use Firefox
as a backup. I should be able to find and
download an older version of Firefox and work
out how to prevent it updating, but just wanted
to check which version of Firefox I would be
looking to download that would still work with
jaws 18. Can you confirm which version I’m
looking for? As for the security side of
everything, I completely understand risks of not
using the most up to date browser and I’m fine
with that side of things, especially since I
really only use Firefox as a backup option as I mentioned previously.

Well, I did this for a number of years. I use
Eset NOD32 as my antivirus, and I turned off all
the threat measures in Firefox. I don’t need
multilayers of protection, as long as my
antivirus and firewall are working and up-to-date.

If I were going to help someone do this, I would
give them caveats, but many people don’t want
to pay for another version of JAWS, and may want
to stay with their same browser.

Hey Bill.

You seem to know what you’re talking about in
this group and so I don’t want to come off as overly critical….

But are you sure helping people to do this is
really a worthy cause? At least, without some important caveats?
Mozilla themselves do not recommend doing this.
Version 52 won’t even be receiving security
updates anymore. I suppose it’s all right, so
long as people understand that it should be only
a temporary measure til they get around to switching to a different course.

Hi, Marilyn. The problem is that whichever
version of Firefox you had previously, it
updated automatically, and, because you don’t
have JAWS 2018, Firefox 62.0 will not work with your version of JAWS.

The only thing to do is to download an earlier
version of Firefox and, after installing it,
make sure you disable automatic updating of
Firefox. This takes a few steps to make sure it doesn’t update.

If you are interested, Write back. I’ll have
you call me, and I’ll also walk you through
the process of disabling any future updates.

I checked on my desktop and Firefox is there but
I cannot tell what version it is.

The whole message says “Display of tab content
has been disabled. Update your screenreader
software or switch to Firefox extended support release.â€
