Using Jaws 2021, I have no issues with Firefox at all.
Pages load fine, and I can navigate as always.

I do not have many, if any, extensions running; so maybe that could be an issue for some?

It does run much better with Jaws 2021, then 2020.

Software means never having to say you're finished

I'm able to use FF but when I load it I need to back out and reenter, then sometimes hit F6 and the tab.

I can always get it working after the initial inconvenience. I like to have a non-Chrome browser handy so have stuck with FF.

There are a loto f commentaries about this on other lists.
I cancelled the update for now and am still running v88.0.1.
Just curious -- do you have a firefox profile?
It seems that if you disable automatic loading of profiles, things work ok, or at least I read that from someone. But most people who have experienced this do not mention a profile, so I'm not sure of this, really.

List members,

I got a Firefox update yesterday and now there is simply no accessibility, even the menus can not be read reliably. I examined the UIA tree with an accessibility test tool and the nodes needed by jaws simply are not present. I'm using chrome to submit this but I really don't care for it, much prefer FF.

Has anyone else experienced this?
