Do you have Jaws 2021 to try it with?

Soronel, pleas do follow up on which extension/plugin might be the culprit. I'd be interested as I rather stick with Firefox and am in the same situation as you are with using Firefox 89.0 with JAWS.

Okay, I should say I just tried restarting FF with extensions disabled and it now works. Guess I need to go through my extensions and try disabling them one at a time.

Try rebooting.
Jaws 2020 seems to be a bit sluggish when I tested with it, but since I primarily use Jaws 2021, I did not go much beyond just confirming that it works but just takes longer to load.

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?
