Re: Does anyone know whether the problem with webvisum not working with the latest version of firefox has been fixed?

 

Mario,

        This is a reasonable presumption.  I have another extension, ShootTheCookies, which used to be available for both Firefox and Chrome but that exists for neither at this point, but that continues to remain installed and functional in Firefox.  I am sure if I were to delete it that there would be no chance of getting it back.

        I am somewhat surprised that you didn't get some sort of warning on webvisum, but given that it requires login and you set it up to do that automatically that is probably what is keeping it active for you.

        I never did hear a peep back from the folks who created webvisum, and that definitely makes me presume that its days are numbered.  But, if people are willing to make the config tweak that Bill White suggests, and someone keeps a copy of the XPI file that installs for Firefox, and the webvisum site and accounts still exist and can be create new ones its life can probably be "artificially extended."  The work around due to its being unsigned is the first step in artificial life support.

in addition, there is a change that can be made in firefox's configuration settings that can allow unsigned extensions to run, but that allows, any, unsigned extension/plugin to run, thus defeating mozillas attempt to improve firefox's security.
it's been suggested to use an earlier portable version of firefox (42) and adding web visum, and use that version when you need to solve captchas.

No, I don’t think there is a way to accomplish this.  The favorites list is connected to IE, and the bookmarks list is connected to Firefox.  There is no way to add items to the IE favorites list from Firefox, nor any way to add items to the FF Bookmarks list from IE.  Plain Old Favorites was really designed for IE users who want the ability to access the favorites list from Firefox as theirsecondary browser.  I use IE 11 as my primary browser and only use Firefox with Webvisum to solve image captchas, although now that I have signed up with Rumola and can solve image captchas with IE, I will probably use Firefox even less frequently.

Is there a way I could remove all of my favorites that I originally imported into Firefox from IE, and then, just recreate the new favorites from there using plainoldfavorites?

 

I guess I could delete them one at a time from Firefox, and start over again, but I’m just wondering if there might be an easier way.

No, you cannot add web pages to the IE favorites list in Firefox.  You can only add them in IE and then access them in Firefox through Plain Old Favorites.  In Firefox, if you want to add a web page as as a favorite, it will be added to the Bookmarks list, not the Favorites list.  So if you want to use Firefox as your primary browser, you will have to deal with two lists of favorites: the favorites list from IE and the bookmarks list from Firefox itself.

Hello, everyone.

 

A while back, I imported internet favorites from Internet Explorer to Firefox using the add-on tool called plain old favorites.

 

 

http://www.iosart.com/firefox/plainoldfavorites/

 

 

Since I now am using Firefox as my main internet browser, I’m interested in adding some additional favorites to my favorites list.

 

I can find the tab that says “add favorites”, but when I attempt to do this, nothing happens.  Jaws says nothing, and I appear to get a blank screen.

 

Am I missing a step here, or is there a different way to add new favorites to my favorites list in Firefox?

JAWS 17 and Auto Complete Email Addresses

Darran Ross
 

Hi List.
 
I'm just making the change to version 17 and have hit upon another thing I'd like to see operate as in my previous JAWS versions,I.e the announcement of auto complete email addresses.
 
Previously, I'd start typing an address and JAWS would announce for me what was being auto completed, now this isn't happening and its slowing me down quite a bit!
 
Does anyone know if there's a setting I need to change to start auto complete being announced once more?
 
Many thanks.
 
Darran
 


Re: fixing my centurytel.net email

 
Edited

Ryan,

        You still didn't mention the e-mail client software you're using.  That being the case, try starting at this Centurylink e-mail setup page.  It contains the setup instructions for a number of e-mail clients and has POP3 information in a category of its own since few use POP access these days if they read e-mail on multiple devices in multiple locations.  Go directly to this page if all you're looking for is the server names and port numbers that work with centurytel.net.

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Try turning off your Virtual Cursor with JAWS Key plus Z once you reach your AdOns, then tab. You should see a list of AdOn categories such as Extensions, Plugins, and Services. PlainOldFavorites should be under Extensions. Once you see Extensions, Tab again, and you should see PlainOldFavorites, and if you have WebVisum installed, it will be there, too.

Hi again, Adrian. PlainOldFavorites is an unsigned AdOn. For this reason, you must change your about:config file in Firefox to make it work. It only works in Firefox. To install the Adon, you must download it from the following link:

 

 

After this, do the following:

 

1.  Open Firefox 43 and in the address bar, type the below line as seen
with no spaces:
about:config
2.  You will get a Firefox warning saying: 'This may void your
warranty.' Click on  the button that says: 'I'll be
careful, I promise.'
3.  tab once to the list of 700 or so items and press the letter X. You
are looking for the below item:
xpinstall.signatures.required
4.  When this item is highlighted, press the context key or right click
and choose toggel or press T (same thing.)
5.  The highlighted value should change to false as in:
xpinstall.signatures.required;false
6.  Press Control-W to close the Firefox window and then relaunch it.
PlainOldFavorites should now work.

I’ve been trying to install Plain Old Favorites today, but I just can’t get it to work. I have the .exe in my downloads folder, but MS doesn’t recognize the file type. I was taken to a recommendation to install Free Viewer, which handles various file types that apparently include Firefox add-ons and extension, but I can’t get Free Viewer even to download, never mind install.

 

The Free viewer webpage is here:

http://www.freeviewer.com/

 

Any better ideas? Also, When I open Firefox add-ons, all I get is a list of recommended add-ons. I can’t get beyond that point.

 

For the record, I have Firefox 43.0.4, Win7 and JAWS 17.

Re: fixing my centurytel.net email

Ryan Coverdell
 

I'm using jaws 14 and windows 7. I in fact would need either instructions as to how to find the incoming and outgoing email servers or I would need some one to just provide these along with the port information. I believe the server type for CenturyTel is a pop 3. Again I really don't want to use tech support from CenturyTel by phone since they don't know Jaws. I may however, just ask them some stuff via email.


Re: Using the Everything Search in conjunction with JAWS & Windows Live Mail

 

Kimsan,

           I'm not quite sure what you're telling us here.   If the file is actually named "notes.xls" then using "notes" (without quotes) in either a Windows search or using Everything should find it.  In the case of a Windows search it will also find any files containing the text "notes" as well whereas Everything will just return files with "notes" somewhere in their names prior to the file extension.

           You say you went back and did "excel.xls" and there it was, but that simply cannot be if the file has "notes" as part of its name, unless the file excel.xls has the word "notes" contained within it and you're using Windows search, in which case it would be among the search results.

           Since Everything deals with file name as the primary search criteria it is generally far, far faster than Windows search because it does not try to examine file content.  If, however, you add the content:<word or words you want in the file> function this will add content searching in addition to file name and it does slow things down for obvious reasons.

Related I think to tussle with Adobe Reader, JAWS has stopped speaking through my headset, regardless of the fact that in the utilities menu it iupposed to use the high definition audio instead of the windows sound card. I don't want my husband to hear everything I do, especially while he is trying to hear something else. How do I tell JAWS to redirect itself through the headset instead of the speakers? It has to be a windows setting, I think, since the JAWS settings already appear correct.

Thanks for any help.

Ann

p.s. I'm using NVDA to type this, and don't have really good control over the output. Sorry about the grammar.

:o!

 

Ok, paste special.  I never used that as the paste special dialog always came up for me when pasting to word.

 

That’s good to know for when it doesn’t come up.

Thank you.

Kimsan, I tested this before posting, but I deceived myself. The key combo is actually control-alt-v. I just tested this one, too, and I think Tech Devil isn’t cackling at me this time.

When pressing that key combo we should see options, before or after selecting text?  I did it both ways and after pressing that key combo, I down arrowed and no options appeared..

 

Windows 10 pro, IE 11 and jaws 17.

Try shift-control-v, then arrow down through the options.

Hi List.

 

I'm having a brain freeze here, and I can't remember for the life of me which setting I need to alter to allow me to copy and paste text from a webpage into a word document?

 

At the moment what I'm copying is not what's being pasted!

 

I've been into the Settings Centre, but I can't find the relevant check box, or even recall what it is I should be looking for. My stumbling about in there is getting me nowhere in a hurry!

 

Any and all help gratefully received.

 

Thanks.

Re: Does anyone know whether the problem with webvisum not working with the latest version of firefox has been fixed?

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, David. This is not a problem. It's a security issue.
 

To Temporarily Make Unsigned AdOns Work In Firefox:



For those of you who depend on Webvisum to solve image captchas in the
absence of sighted help, read on.  The recently-released Firefox 43
introduced a new feature that blocks unsigned third-party add-ons like
Webvisum and prevents them from working.  So if you update to Firefox 43
either intentionally or accidently, Webvisum will no longer work unless you
apply the temporary work around described below.  This is only a temporary
fix that will no longer work after Firefox 44 is released early next year,
because this work around will be disabled or unflagged in Firefox 44.  And
if you buy a new computer next year after Firefox 44 is released and then
download and install it, Webvisum will no longer work at all, no matter what
you try.  So if you still have an older version of Firefox with a working
version of Wevvisum already installed, do not update to Firefox 43 or else
Wevvisum will no longer work unless you apply the temporary work around
described below.  The reason that Webvisum no longer works starting with
Firefox 43 is that Mozilla now requires all third-party add-ons to be signed
to comply with their security standards.  Unfortunately, Webvisum has not
been maintained by its developers for years, and they no longer even respond
to email inquiries.  So Webvisum is an unsigned add-on that is not approved
by Mozilla.  If you do update to Firefox 43,you can get Webvisum to work by
following these steps:

1.  Open Firefox 43 and in the address bar, type the below line as seen with no spaces:
about:config
2.  You will get a Firefox warning saying: 'This may void your warranty.' Click on  the button that says: 'I'll be careful, I promise.'
3.  tab once to the list of 700 or so items and press the letter X. You are looking for the below item:
xpinstall.signatures.required
4.  When this item is highlighted, press the context key or right click and choose toggel or press T (same thing.)
5.  The highlighted value should change to false as in:
xpinstall.signatures.required;false
6.  Press Control-W to close the Firefox window and then relaunch it.
Webvisum should now work.

Re: Using the Everything Search in conjunction with JAWS & Windows Live Mail

Kimsan <kimsansong@...>
 

So I have this file in excel called notes of course with the excel extention.

 

I searched for it, a bunch of stuff relating to notes came up but not the excel file. I then went back and did excel.xls and there it was.

I keep forgetting where that file is stored, so I downloaded the program you distributed to see if I could locate it much quicker.

Kimsan,

         No.  I very seldom use extensions as part of my searches.  The great thing is that you can include spaces in your search criteria and it "AND"s the various parts in the search.  Below is the comprehensive search syntax, if you're not using regular expressions.  You can also set the search to use regular expressions rather than the default search syntax.  If you don't know what they are don't worry about it, but for those who've used them for long periods of time, Linux users in particular, this is a big, big plus.
