Re: For all you CTRL+N "Create New Folder" users in Windows up to Win7

Yeah, there's a lot of crossover between the military and IT security folks. And yes, I'm definitely not the average user. But then again, an average user wouldn't maintain a functional server, using an actual server OS, in their home network either. (I started doing that back in the Netware 3.10 days because it solved so many problems in the household)

Your brief resume, and this statement, separate you at quite a distance
from "the average user." "Hardened against attack," is a phrase I've
only heard used by IT folks and the military.

I've been a programmer in FORTRAN, Pascal, C, multiple versions of SQL,
a DBA, a programmer-analyst, a team leader for a small group of
programmers, and have done PC hardware support and software support for
years now, in addition to my other occupations. That kinda separates
me from "the average user," too.

Re: Keyboard web site.

I’m glad Elise posted a reminder about this add-on. No reason to remember the different ways of doing things browser to browser. It’s bad enough that accessibility requires screenreader users to use more than one browser. This is entirely different from giving up on MS’s ribbons in Windows by resorting to the so-called virtual ribbon, which puts screenreader users in a different world from sighted people.

 Elise,

           I urge you to think about these sorts of plug-ins, not from a safety perspective, but from a "really knowing how to use the program you're actually using" perspective.   IE, and now MS-Edge, are among the very few browsers that still use the terminology "Favorites."  Most others moved to bookmarks a long while ago.

           I get why, I get entirely why, they have their appeal but I also think it's important to invest at least some time trying to match yourself to the actual software you've chosen to use rather than put cloaks over common functions to make them appear like they do in another program.

           The above being said, here's the direct link to the Add-On page that lets you add PlainOldFavorites to Firefox.  This add-on is actually quite distinctive in that it's not a masker, per se, but allows you to use any Favorites you've already created in IE or Windows under Firefox and adds a separate menu to do so.  For myself, I'd rather export from IE (or whatever browser) and import into Firefox (or whatever browser) and avoid an added menu. These days with the sync features available in most web browsers (although only within each one) you can have your entire collection of settings, including bookmarks, available for your use if you log in to the browser itself and disappear as soon as you log out.

Re: need guidance on navigating in windows 10

I'd like to see some support of the Opera programs, like the browser and email client. but I don't know the well being of Opera, if it's a good alternative to IE or FF.

Fascinating. I had once had hopes that FS would start supporting
Firefox far more robustly than they have. It was the #2 web browser,
and never far behind IE when in that position, for years. Now Chrome
is eating everyone's proverbial shorts, and I use Firefox and Chrome
both equally.

I still have hopes that FS is finally going to give up on only doing
real support for IE since its end of life date is now known. What I
hope they don't do is to simply transfer allegiance to Edge, but rather
pay attention to the most popular web browsers by number of users.

Clearly, just based upon the posts on this very forum, JAWS users can
and do download web browsers other that IE, and then use them, all the
time. You just end up with peculiarities such as the one you've
described when not using IE.

Re: Keyboard web site.

Elise Berkley
 

Hello, Maryann. I was having this problem in firefox, where I could not figure out how to get to my favorites. My friend, who is a computer whiz, told me about a Firefox plug-in (I think that is what they call them) called "Plain Old favorites". I downloaded it and it adds another favorite menu that looks and acts exactly like the favorites menu in IE. If you look for this and cannot find it under that name, let me know and I will ask my friend abut that app. I loved it.

They are not online, well they were but I downloaded them to my computer.

It’s through my college at PSU.

 

If I gave you my PSU user name and password, I suppose you could view them.

 

I am leaving work right now, but I’m thinking since it’s a version set for 97/2003 and I use 2013, would this be any indication to why its crashing? Not compatible?

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.

I am sure on the menus it is there somewhere however I can’t be bothered looking for it.  Instead I use the jaws cursor.  You can usually find the icon on the bottom of the ribbon off to the right.  I click the work edit and away I go.

I generally know how to disable the protected view; however, when I open up the power point document, pressing alt f does nothing.

I have a few power points to read but it just says protected view. How can I read them?

Thanks.
