There is a "sticky key" function with Jaws that allows you to press insert, then another key using one hand.

Due to an injury to the little finger on my right hand, I find pressing keystrokes such as INSERT+CTRL a problem. Not only that, when you press CTRL+F and type a search term on a page, I find that when you press ENTER, to activate the search function, it does not appear to take you to the result, if it finds it!

Yeah, ctrl-f activates the browser's find function and not JAWS's, I
that as well. That's actually ok I think as that's the way browsers are
meant to function. Is it that much of a pain for you to use insert-ctrl-f
instead? You already have to do this in for examplea dobe reader...
That said I'm sure you could remap the keystroke somehow. I don't think
has separate keyboard/script files for waterfox, and that's why the
find doesn't work the same. You could probably create one if you watned

Subject: Using Waterfox
Using Windows 7 and JAWS Version 2018, I installed WaterFox on one of my
computers this morning.
So far, I have found one irritating thing, that is, When I press CTRL+F,
JAWS now says, "Search in page", followed by the word edit.
How can I apply the keystroke, INSERT+CTRL+F, which is the JAWS search
command to CTRL+F, instead.
So far, with the limited use I have had using this browser, I am liking
speed and accessing the web pages I have visited.
Thank you in anticipation for any suggestions.
