Even without support from Microsoft for IE, if it is a known site liketoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Amazon.com or the BARD site, there are no security threats and Internet
Explorer is perfectly safe.
Most people come across malicious sites either from fishing eMails or a web
Even if I believe a message is from a legitimate site, I will typically go
to that site from my bookmarks and look for the information that the eMail
I see a lot of fishing messages like my account needs updating or something
like that, and they want you to follow the link to your account.
When you check the properties of that link, you find it is not going to the
site that they are claiming.
That is where IE has problems, in fact, many browsers may have problems with
a link from a fishing message.
And even if folks prefer IE, it should not be your default browser, because
if you are tired and make a mistake on such a message, you want to have some
protection that Chrome or FireFox is better suited to provide.

I have never experienced this problem, no matter which version of JAWS I
use. For the record, it's now the latest release of JAWS 2020.
The reason to avoid Internet Explorer is the diminished security support
that I understand Microsoft now provides.

I have noticed that both Google Chrome and Mozilla firefox frequently crash
when accessing Amazon.com using JAWS 2019. This most often happens after I
enter a search term into the Amazon search field. The search results page
will begin to load, but as soon as I try scrolling through the results,
boom, the browser crashes. Trying to restore the session from the restore
dialog that pops up when I relaunch the browser never works, and almost
always causes the browser to crash again when it attempts to reload the
Amazon search results page. It does not matter whether I use the latest
version of Chrome, the latest version of Firefox or Firefox 52 ESR.
Interestingly,I do not experience these problems when using IE to access
Amazon.com, proving yet again that reports of IE's uselessness as a web
browser have been greatly exagerrated.
