I did this for both Google Chrome and Firefox. In other words, use virtual cursor is now checked in both browsers.

Hi again, Tom. Another thing to try is this.
1. Start either Google Chrome or Firefox.
2. Press INSERT plus six on the numbers row to bring up Settings Center.
3. In the search box type the word use
4. One of the options that may result is Use Virtual PC Cursor.
5. Make sure this is checked.
6. When closing Settings Center, save the configuration file. It will prompt you if you wish to do this.
This should keep the Virtual Cursor on each time you start either Chrome or Firefox.
Yes, that solved my problem.
Will that have any impacts for my other commonly-used apps such as Outlook, Microsoft Word, Excel, etc.?
Yes. Instead of pressing INSERT plus Z in the browser while the cursor is off, try pressing the same keystroke twice quickly. It should say Virtual cursor will be turned on for all applications.
Ever since I went into Jaws settings, and set Jaws to “Full content using on screen highlight” in both Firefox and Google Chrome, I now need to manually turn on my virtual cursor every time I open up a web site in either browser.
Is there a way I can avoid this extra step??
If not, I may set things back to the virtual cursor option.
