I ditched Jaws on my last full reset.  It made my system seem broken in so many apps. Mostly web browsers. But, other places.  Turns out. It wasn't Jaws at fault all the time.

BTW: Using Narrator and NVDA.

I’m having the same issues with Firefox and at times also with Internet Explorer. Just an FYI

I’m noticing it, too, and one site,, crashes firefox, and I have to kill it with Task Manager.

I’m wondering if anybody else is having this problem.

I’m running Firefox version 62, latest version of JFW, and Windows 10.

I’ll be arrowing down through a web page, and all of a sudden JAWS just stops reading. Sometimes it comes back after a few seconds, but not always.

I especially notice it when reading the Boston Globe in NFB Newsline on the web.


Also when I’m using Google Docs, I’m noticing an irritating lag when I hit up or down arrow in a document.


Any thoughts on how to remedy this?
