Hi, J.M. Try the following to keep Firefox from updating automatically.

 

Keep Firefox From Updating

 

 

1. Open Firefox.

2. Press ALT plus T, then O for Options.

3. TAB about 27 times, find Updates, and Arrow down to “Never Check For Updates”.

4. Uncheck the box that says “Use A Background Service To Update Firefox”.

5. Go to Control Panel>Programs And Features, and uninstall Mozilla Maintenance Service.

6. Go to Program Files (if 64-bit) or to Program Files (x86) (if 32-bit).

7. Open the Mozilla Firefox folder, and delete the files named “updater.exe” and “updater.ini”.

8. Now Firefox cannot update automatically.

Hey Bill.

 

Thanks for providing those links, but, unless I’m wrong, once installed, those Firefox 52 versions will try to update to 60, which is the version the ESR branch is currently on. This was what we were warned about last year; we could continue to use ESR until September of 2018, at which point it would also be switched to Quantum. This has  now happened to me.

Hi, Marty. In order for you to use JAWS with Firefox 60 and up, you need the latest version of JAWS, which is JAWS 2018. JAWS 16, 17, and 18 are incompatible with Firefox 60 and up. These versions of Firefox are called Quantum. They contain a version of Sandbox which causes Firefox not to be able to react with JAWS versions earlier than 2018. They had to do some intensive reworking of JAWS to get it to function properly with the newer versions of Firefox. In order for you to use Firefox with JAWS 18, you would need to install an earlier version of Firefox ESR. I will provide a couple of links to the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Firefox ESR in case you wish to downgrade your version of Firefox.

 

Firefox ESR 52, English US 32-bit:

 

Firefox Setup 52.0esr.exe

 

Firefox ESR 52, English US 64-bit:

Mike,

I thought I had used page down, but I just tried that and, although I can see that the screen is moving up, focus does not seem to change. So, just hold down your tab key for several seconds, then stop to check where you are.  The items are in alphabetical order, so you can just keep holding down the tab key in short spurts until you get to the “P” section.

These versions of Firefox are called Quantum. They contain a version of Sandbox which causes Firefox not to be able to react with JAWS versions earlier than 2018.

How To Navigate the File Types List in Windows 10 With Jaws

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Okay, I found that you can fast forward through the, Choose default apps by file type link, if you turn Key Repeat on. 
1. To do this, after the file types list is loaded up open the Settings Center with, Jaws Key + 6 on the number row, and if you get a new configuration message select the, Okay, option and press the spacebar.  Arrow down to, User closed, and right arrow to open.
 
2. Down arrow to, Key Repeat not checked, and press the spacebar to check this.
 
3. Tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.  Now if you hold the Tab key down it will fast forward through this long list of file types.
It's funny listening to Jaws fast forward through this long files type list because it sounds like fast forwarding a cassette tape.  LOL 
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Subject: PDF file automatically goes into Edge

 

Hello, I downloaded a PDF file from my bank’s web site. I put my cursor on the file and pressed enter. It opens the file into Microsoft Edge. Jaws cannot read anything. I even put the cursor on the file and used the Jaws OCR function and that didn’t work. Do I need to turn on or off certain settings? OR is there a way for it to go into Acrobat reader?

Hi Randy,
 
Using the Set Defaults by App link made this much easier.  I didn't have to navigate the long list of file types to set Adobe as my default PDF reader.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

I am setting up a new computer and just made this adjustment myself.  I agree with Robin, it is a very long list you have to work through before you find .pdf but it is there.  Once you find it making the change is easy.

I followed Steve’s instructions, as I needed to make this change, too.  I did not find PDF in the initial list of default app settings, but there was a link to other file types.  I clicked that and was able to move down the long list of alphabetical file types and click that button to make the adjustment to Adobe.

Hi Kevin,

 

Firstly press your Windows key, then type Default Programs and press enter.

 

Now tab around until you hear PDF then Edge, which will be a button.  Press space on it, and change it with up and down arrows to Acrobat Reader DC.

 

Now any PDF file will open in DC.

 

All the best

 

Steve

Hi Robin,
 
I've tried that, but no go!  Is there a setting that I should change to make the navigation move faster when holding down the Tab key?  Thanks much.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Mike,

I thought I had used page down, but I just tried that and, although I can see that the screen is moving up, focus does not seem to change. So, just hold down your tab key for several seconds, then stop to check where you are.  The items are in alphabetical order, so you can just keep holding down the tab key in short spurts until you get to the “P” section.

Hi Robin,

 

I don't want to wear out my Tab key navigating that long list of file types!  LOL  Do you know of a quicker way of navigating that list of file types?  If so, would please share?!  Thank you very much.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
