how can i add the classic firefox theme to firefox"

David Ingram
 

Hi list members, I’d like to know step by step how to make sure that I get the classic firefox theme?  I want to make sure that this theme is added to firefox.  My only other concern would be security and whether this ad-in is recent and up-to-date?  Thank you for any information that you might have concerning my questions!

Hi again Carolyn,

This is for in the morning if you see this, I visited the Ahdi website
and noticed a few courses to take, and as a beginner, Ithought 3 were
ve necessary to become a transcriptionist. could you tell me if any
specific one should be tak first from your experience? I'm also
planning on calling them for more advice. I'm thankful you posted this
info cause knew I could take a course there to get certified in this
field. Thanks!

At

years,
but others on this list may be able to give better guidance toward
certification. I was certified for about 20 years. Once certified, it is
necessary to take continuing education to maintain certification, and you
probably would find that interesting and helpful to you with the work.

Bye for now,

Hi list members,



I'm currently searching for a customer service, medical
transcription, or other home based position but am not sure what
extra equipment I might need to do these types of jobs from home.
Do I need special software, special headset and/or ear bud, etc.?
I use Windows 7 and Jaws 15.



Could somebody please share their current or past experience with
home based employment? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: JAWS Friendly FTP Client

Oooo, nice touch. I saw the name WinSCP, but couldn't remember where I've seen it before so didn't know if it was reputable. But local editing of files on a linux box certainly has its appeal. I think we have a winner.

Once upon a time, you could use Windows Explorer to access FTP servers. According to Google, you still can, but my computer disagrees. Following Microsoft's instructions, no matter what I do, I get an error that says the folder I'm specifying is invalid. So I'm totally over that.

I know how to use FTP from the command line, but I've got some really awkwardly long file names, and I'd rather not have to type them exactly. (It's a UNIX server so capitalization even matters.)

Can anybody recommend a basic FTP client that JAWS reads well? Ideally free. I don't need anything fancy; I just want the ability to copy some files from a regular folder on my computer and paste them into the FTP server, and the other way around.

Thanks,
Brad

Re: classic firefox theme

 

Brad,

          The button for "the main menu" in Chrome looks like three vertical lines, with rounded ends, stacked atop each other.  I've now seen multiple references to "the hamburger stack button" in Chrome, Firefox, and elsewhere.  It is beginning to spread like a virus to be the "menu button menu."

           I don't know if I was tired and brain dead last night or if my computer was, but pressing ALT in Chrome then was doing nothing.  Tonight, an ALT press highlights the hamburger stack button and a down arrow makes the menu options appear.  It also lists the keyboard shortcuts for a number of the more commonly used functions, e.g., Ctrl+J for show downloads (also in a tab, not a dialog box), Ctrl+T for new tab, Ctrl+N for new Chrome window, etc.  I still don't like this nearly as much as the standard Windows menu conventions that have been present in virtually every Windows program for decades where ALT+ appropriate character brings up a menu and then pressing successive letters for functions under that menu, sub functions under sub menus, etc., can drill you down deep into the menu structure to get to what you need in a matter of a few keystrokes and seconds.

Re: IMazilla and facebook

Brad Martin
 

Don't use Control O in Mozilla. That specifically asks Mozilla to find the file on your computer. Use Control l instead.

Whatever you're seeing in Mozilla with Facebook Mobile should be very similar to what you see in IE. Now, Chrome gives you a very different experience.

I will say, and I don't know if this is a JAWS thing or just a browser thing, but where IE will tell you that 17 people liked your comment, Firefox will only say the word "likes" at least in Facebook Mobile.

Re: classic firefox theme

Not sure what a hamburger stack is, although I did have a good hamburger tonight. But in Chrome, pressing Alt causes JAWS to say "Chrome menu" and arrowing down seems to present a single-file line of options that seem to be just a long line of menu choices. I don't know if they're all inclusive, but all the big hits seem to be there.

Re: setting homepage with mazilla

 

Judith,

        Sorry I couldn't respond to your e-mail and I'm glad Brad jumped in here.  I had a 3.25 hour marathon with one of my clients this afternoon and returned home just a short time ago.

Brad,

        It appears that the trend toward non-dialog-box but more webpage like settings pages in both Firefox and Chrome is creeping outward both within those browsers and influencing others, too.

Brian


Re: setting homepage with mazilla

Brad Martin
 

To change your home page, Press Alt t for the Tools menu, then arrow down to Options.

The options screen is unusual, at least through JAWS. It's not a dialog box. Instead, it appears like a web page. So instead of tabs, you have to choose the page of options you want from a Listbox. At the top of the page, in the first Listbox (which almost seems empty until you turn on forms mode), select General. Then navigate the options as you would a web page, From there you should find the option to set your home page.

I think what you are looking for is:

You might be more comfortable typing in:
