Re: Using Waterfox


contrrol f is the windows search function. it does go to the item. but you have to close the find dialog box before you know where you are on the page. if you want to continue the same search you press f3.

Hello there:

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 noticed
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 jAWS
has separate keyboard/script files for waterfox, and that's why the virtual
find doesn't work the same. You could probably create one if you watned to.

Hello everyone:

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 its
speed and accessing the web pages I have visited.

Thank you in anticipation for any suggestions.
