According to someone else experiencing this issue who has been in correspondence with VFO about it (they never contacted me about my bug report), there will be an update rolled out for jAWS 2018 to fix this.

Yeah I get that all the time. Although occasionally it works smooth as silk but the very moment I need some time sensitive information, bang, it freezes and I have to use the task manager to end the task. GRRR!
Really, JAWS 2019 Beta; although I use JAWS 2018 and Firefox 62, there is a serious issue with JFW that causes Firefox to freeze up frequently and need to be restarted with task manager.
You need Jaws 2018 for the new Firefox to work correctly. Is that the version of Jaws you are running?

Okay, my kids both have Dell laptops and predominately use NVDA because Jaws hates their school's website. Anyways they need to take an online test on another website and all Jaws is speaking is the keys we hit - it won't read any webpage. I know this has to be something completely stupid, but I need to get this sorted out for them to take this test.... ugh. We are all more familiar with NVDA and not Jaws which we obviously need to balance out but the kids prefer NVDA as they have no issue's with it.
