Nothing seems to happen when I go to Firefox add-in manager

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

In Firefox, when I go to the add-in manager nothing seems to happen.  I do hear a sound as if I am placed into some edit field, like a search box.  However, that is all that seems to happen.  I cannot move out of that box, tab around or otherwise see what is on this screen.  How do I access this properly?  FYI, I am using the latest builds of JAWS 2019 and Firefox under Windows 7.

 

Thanks,

Richard


Re: some basic chrome naviagation questions

JM Casey
 

Hi.

 

Yes, hitting alt instantly says ‘chromium button” for me using JAWS 2018 and allows access of the menus. JAWS 18 performed exactly the same way.

Like in firefox, if you press f11, this menu disappears and alt will do nothing. So if you hit alt and nothing seems to happen, try this toggle to bring it back.

Re: The best internet browser to use with JAWS.

 

I guess it's the new and different which makes you not satisfied, when it comes to speed there is just no comparison and as for the rest you get used to it. I have used Chrome now for a couple of years pretty much 99.9% of the time and if for some reason I go back to IE to check something its slowness drives me crazy.

Hi again, Michael. If talking with you by telephone is too inconvenient, alternatively, try the following:

 

Try deleting normal.dot. This is a template. The templates are located in the following folder

 

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

 

where

 

<username>

 

is your individual username (example)

 

C:\Users\michael\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

 

Then, once you have deleted normal.dot, try opening MS Word again. The first time you open MS Word, after deleting the normal template, MS Word will create a fresh new copy of the Normal.dot template with its default settings.

 

Good luck. If you have difficulty, I will privately send you my telephone number.

Hi Liz!

The best browser to use with JAWS, for me, has been a browser called:

Waterfox.

It was developed in 2012, and it is a spin off of Firefox, but it works tons better.

It can use all of the classic Firefox plugins, and it is so very fast.

JAWS never messes up in Waterfox. It is kept up to date, and it is very secure. A new update just came out.

Water fox has an interface that is almost like the old Firefox.

It has a spell check built in and everything.

It has a reading mode where you can get the clutter off the page, and read the article.

The reading mode is built in.

You just press:

Alt+CTRL+R to put a web site into reading mode.

With JAWS, I would say that Waterfox is my favorite browser.

You can just do a Google search for Waterfox.

What I like as well, is the ability to download a portable version of Waterfox.

I love running a portable version, that I keep on the computer, because you do not have to install it on the computer. Also, if you keep the portable version on the computer, you can create a short cut on the desktop just like you can with installed programs.

I hope this helps.

Take care, Liz.

Re: I am having a problem exiting Dropbox

Hi Dave,
 
Dropbox has made moving the default location of the Dropbox folder a total pain in the ass!  You need to get into the Dropbox preferences, then go to the Sync tab and you'll find the, Move the Dropbox folder, dialogues there.  Before you can move the folder you need to have Dropbox turned off / not running.
 
Here's some steps to get to the Dropbox Preferences from the System Tray using Windows 7 & 10 Pro, with latest Jaws 2019, & providing you have Dropbox showing in the system tray:
1. Open the system tray with, Insert + F11.
2 Navigate to the, Dropbox folder, and press enter.
3. If you hear, Edit, press enter again, and now up arrow to, Preferences, and press enter.
4. Control + Tab, to the Sync tab, now tab quickly a few times to, Apply, now right after you hear, Apply, tab to get your, Move, dialogue / options.
Take Care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.
