Regarding getting back to the main page expeditiously these days, I typically know I am on the main page if I press the Number Pad Plus key. If I hear Virtual Cursor, I know I am on the main page. If I think I am not on the main page, I press F6 and then Plus to verify.
Most of the time, this approach has worked for me.

My guess, as this happens to me, is that tabbing not only moves you through elements on a webpage, but also moves to the address bar, the section on the toolbar where all your open tabs are listed, and at least one other browser navigation thing, depending on your browser and settings. Drives me crazy and I’d love to know if there is a way to stop it, but I havent’ found it in any modern browser. I tend to use tab, since I don’t always know if what I’m looking for is a button or link, but tab goes right on past the last element on a webpage and lands on those browser navigation buttons.

Is there a tutorial on how to use tabs with JAWS. I am having a problem and I am not sure what I am doing to cause the problem. I can be in one tab and navigating through the web page and suddenly I am in a different tab.Or back in the address bar and can't get out of it.
