Re: send mail, a question

 

In addition to trying another browser, which will tell you more about whether this is a browser issue or a web page coding issue, I would also suggest clearing your browser cache in Firefox (or even all your browsers).

Cache corruption can cause all kinds of weird problems and clearing it often makes them disappear.

If you are a CCleaner user it includes the option to clear cache for each browser installed on your computer, or you can do a web search on the browser name and the phrase "clear cache" you'll find scads of step-by-step instruction sets for any browser you can name, though including the browser version along with the name these days  is a good idea, too, since the exact steps have changed over time and version.

Hi, Jed. Which browser are you using?

Try another browser, and see if you can get the sendmail link to come up, and not just the label.

Hey guys,

OK, so i am seeing something very odd here in firefox. I am on a web

send email.
I'm hitting the applications key which normally has an option of copy

Paul,  How does Crome work with JAWS 18?  I am using Firefox version 52 and JAWS 18 and it works, but I have run into problems with some web pages and want a different browser and you say that you use Crome as your main browser with Firefox as a back up.

Hi Bill,

 

I had the same issue the other day ,I’m only running  jaws 18, so looks like that’s what the issue must be. In all fairness  I actually use chrome as my main browser, but use Firefox as a backup. I should be able to find and download an older version of Firefox and work out how to prevent it updating, but just wanted to check which version of Firefox I would be looking to download that would still work with jaws 18. Can you confirm which version I’m looking for? As for the security  side of everything, I completely understand risks of not using the most up to date browser and I’m fine with that side of things, especially  since I really only use Firefox as a backup option as I mentioned previously.

Well, I did this for a number of years. I use Eset NOD32 as my antivirus, and I turned off all the threat measures in Firefox. I don’t need multilayers of protection, as long as my antivirus and firewall are working and up-to-date.

 

If I were going to help someone do this, I would give them caveats, but many people don’t want to pay for another version of JAWS, and may want to stay with their same browser.

Mozilla themselves do not recommend doing this. Version 52 won’t even be receiving security updates anymore. I suppose it’s all right, so long as people understand that it should be only a temporary measure til they get around to switching to a different course.

Hi, Marilyn. The problem is that whichever version of Firefox you had previously, it updated automatically, and, because you don’t have JAWS 2018, Firefox 62.0 will not work with your version of JAWS.

 

The only thing to do is to download an earlier version of Firefox and, after installing it, make sure you disable automatic updating of Firefox. This takes a few steps to make sure it doesn’t update.

 

If you are interested, Write back. I’ll have you call me, and I’ll also walk you through the process of disabling any future updates.

Surface Go

denise avant <denise.avant@...>
 

Hello all,

I am considering purchasing the new Surface Go for traveling. I would want to use it with the full Windows version, and run JAWS with the MS Suite of products. Has anyone used this tablet/computer with JAWS in the full Windows mode. Are there any other types of Windows devices that are the equivalent of the Surface Go that JAWS would comfortably run on.

I am also looking at a Surface Book in the alternative. It has been suggested that the Lenovo Yoga book might be a good option or one by HP.

I just want to know what peoples’ experience has been. Thank you.

Bill,  You and others on this group site helped me solv this same problem just last week.  I do thank you for that.  I had to unplug my computer from my router after I reinstalled Firefox 52, so it couldn’t automatically update itself to version 60.  I then uninstalled the Mozilla maintainance, turned off automatic updates and went into the mozilla folder on C/Program Files and deleted the 2 Update files.  After plugging my computer back into my router, everything works fine now except that every time I open Firefox now I get a pop up message that Firefox has found an update and I should install it.  I just close it and go on.

Re: Firefox extended support release

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Fair enough. But when you have browsers becoming unsupported and going further “out-of-date”, often various elements of the web simply no longer work right. We’re seeing this already with Internet Explorer, even though technically it *is* still supported by Microsoft. There are also security holes in the browsers themselves that, once discovered, literally need to be patched even though they never bothered anybody until said discovery. I know Mozilla was just alerted to one they deemed “critical” just the other week. I know everyone can be a bit alarmist about computer security at times, and I know updates can be a pain, but I think the web browser is one piece of software I would like to keep current, and would especially advise those who might not be quite as savvy as others that they should probably do this.

 

I totally understand not wanting to pay for JAWS updates. It is unfortunate that FS didn’t backport Firefox Quantum support to at least JAWS 18, since they did so with Edge support. But there are alternatives. NVDA for instance works great with Firefox today. I did pay for a JAWS upgrade and I’m still not happy with JAWS Firefox support, as there’s a bug that causes it to keep crashing on at least some of our machines.

Well, I did this for a number of years. I use Eset NOD32 as my antivirus, and I turned off all the threat measures in Firefox. I don’t need multilayers of protection, as long as my antivirus and firewall are working and up-to-date.

 

If I were going to help someone do this, I would give them caveats, but many people don’t want to pay for another version of JAWS, and may want to stay with their same browser.

Hey Bill.

 

You seem to know what you’re talking about in this group and so I don’t want to come off as overly critical….

But are you sure helping people to do this is really a worthy cause? At least, without some important caveats?

Mozilla themselves do not recommend doing this. Version 52 won’t even be receiving security updates anymore. I suppose it’s all right, so long as people understand that it should be only a temporary measure til they get around to switching to a different course.

Hi, Marilyn. The problem is that whichever version of Firefox you had previously, it updated automatically, and, because you don’t have JAWS 2018, Firefox 62.0 will not work with your version of JAWS.

 

The only thing to do is to download an earlier version of Firefox and, after installing it, make sure you disable automatic updating of Firefox. This takes a few steps to make sure it doesn’t update.

 

If you are interested, Write back. I’ll have you call me, and I’ll also walk you through the process of disabling any future updates.

I checked on my desktop and Firefox is there but I cannot tell what version it is.

 

The whole message says “Display of tab content has been disabled. Update your screenreader software or switch to Firefox extended support release.”

 

My laptop is set to automatically do updates, so I don’t know what the problem is.

 

Thanks.

Is that the whole extent of the message you are getting? It doesn’t sound like it’s telling you to do anything. Do you use firefox already? What version?

Hello all,

 

Yesterday I had no problems with opening a link in the body of certain emails, but now I’m getting a prompt that says the link cannot open and I should do the following: “Firefox extended support release.”

 

What does this mean? How would I go about doing this?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you so much.

 

Marilyn

Marilyn,
Bill hit the nail on the head. Also, having Windows set to do automatic updates, will only update Windows, not your applications.

Firefox is your default web browser it sounds like. You didn’t say, but it sounds like  you are using an old(er) version of JAWS. This won’t work with any of the new Firefox versions, including the extended support release as of a week or two ago. You’ll have to either upgrade JAWS, use a different screen-reader, or use a different browser.

 

I like Firefox a lot and want to continue using it, but at present there is a bug in JAWS 2018 that causes it to hang fairly often. Apparently this may be fixed soon.
