Changed Bookmark Link In Firefox

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

I have just noticed a very anoying problem with Firefox.

 

Here’s the short explanation:

 

In Firefox, I have a bookmark for the web site of my local National Weather Service office.

 

I also have this link in Internet Explorer.

 

For some reason, when I now go to that link in Firefox, I get the National Weather Service Central Region Headquarters web site, and not the web site of mylocal NWS office.

 

Interestingly, when I go to the same bookmark in Internet Explorer (which can be found  in my IE 11 favorites), the local weather service web site comes up just fine.

 

How could this have changed in Firefox, and are there steps I can use to reinstate my preferred link in my Firefox bookmarks?

 

All of this is causing me to seriously consider dumping Firefox, and going to Google Chrome as my alternative to Internet Explorer.

 

In fact, I have installed Google Chrome on my new Windows 10 computer, and will start trying it out once I get that computer more completely set up.

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

I called Vispero yesterday and they said the shipment for the SMA will be shipping Nextweek due to some delay.

I don't think it's a good idea to discontinue the Disk shippment. I prefer receiving my SMA  

via DVD. 

 

You are right  the waste of resource 

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving

Why would you need to shred a JAWS DVD? It has no private information on the
DVD that in any way would compromise you, except for your name and address
on the CD envelope. This you can shred with a regular document shredder

Re: How To Disable Automatic F S cast Announcements

Yes, it comes up when there is a podcast that it thinks you have not listened to.

There is a tick box on the page telling you about the podcase that you can tick so it doesn’t show these any more.

I shut down and re-booted my computer for another reason, and this time, when Jaws opened, I did not get the FS podcast notification.

 

I wonder if it just comes upp periodically?

 

I’ve looked for default settings, but can’t seem to find them in the Jaws menus.

 

If you can tell me where I can find them, I’ll make the change that way.

When it first comes up you Shift+Tab once to Not show this in the future, might be slightly different wording, but it's simply a checkbox, check it and tab to OK.

You can also do it by searching default settings for "FS", the following is the only option which shows up:

Notify about new FSCasts not checked
Miscellaneous- that means it's in Settings under the Miscellaneous group.

No, my response was based on your specifying a shortcut that already points
to a web browser. My point is that any shortcut that is not strictly a link
to a URL is a candidate for making a copy and creating a file-based
executable shortcut with a URL as the pass parameter. Either suggestion from

Kimber,

The shortcut you created is based on using an URL to launch a web site. It
will not work with a file execution.

First, make a copy of some other shortcut on your desktop that *does not*
launch a web page, such as Notepad, your email program, etc. Something that
does not have an http: in the first edit field.

Now Alt+Enter on that copied shortcut and edit the first field with your
browser file path followed by the http: of the web site you want.
Make sure to surround the file path with quotation marks if there are any
spaces in the folder or file names -- it cannot have any spaces.

Save the shortcut and then use F2 to rename the icon on your desktop.

reply implies a no to my inquiry, or I'm not understanding your reply.

Kimber,

The shortcut you created is based on using an URL to launch a web site. It
will not work with a file execution.

First, make a copy of some other shortcut on your desktop that *does not*
launch a web page, such as Notepad, your email program, etc. Something that
does not have an http: in the first edit field.

Now Alt+Enter on that copied shortcut and edit the first field with your
browser file path followed by the http: of the web site you want.
Make sure to surround the file path with quotation marks if there are any
spaces in the folder or file names -- it cannot have any spaces.

Save the shortcut and then use F2 to rename the icon on your desktop.

Thanks again. Now for some troubleshooting. When I open properties and
enter my file path before the url of the BARD site everything looks
fine. I ok out then when I test it I am seeing a message that says
this page can't be displayed. When I go back into the properties I am
seeing http in front of my file path. I'm guessing this is the
problem, but I can't seem to get rid of that http. Everytime I delete

Hello,

Not too long ago there was a discussion of how to make a shortcut to a
web site open with a particular browser that isn't your default
browser. I believe that discussion took place on this list, but I
can't find the relevant posts. Would someone be good enough to refresh
my memory on how to accomplish this?

Specifically what I want to do is open the NLS BARD web site using
firefox which is not my default browser.

Thanks for any help.

Solved: 2 problems with Microsoft Teams and Jaws 2019

Delaunay Christophe
 

Hi Dean and all,

 

Many thanks for your fast response. Problem is that since my computer is not reachable from outside my employer’s network, it would not be easy for me to contact someone who could remotely handle it.

 

However, the good news is that both problems are not problems indeed.

 

My error comes from the fact that Jaws 2018 is also installed on this computer and I wrongly started Jaws 2018 instead of 2019. After installing 2019 alongside with 2018, I chose to migrate my 2018 settings to this newly installed 2019 and now, both installed Jaws version work exactly the same. Of course, they have two different shortcuts to start them but if Jaws is running so long that I don’t remember which version I launched, I now know I must check this by opening the “About” dialog box.

 

But this time, with Jaws 2019, the contextual menu of Microsoft Teams systray icon is properly spoken and brailled. In addition, although the document itself cannot be easily edited inside the Teams app, I am not trapped like I was with Jaws 2018 after closing my preferred editor. If the document stays open in a pane of Teams, I have still access to the toolbar buttons and can close this pane like my sighted colleague did while I was mistakenly using Jaws 2018.

 

Many thanks and happy thanksgiving. Chris D

First, make a copy of some other shortcut on your desktop that *does not*
launch a web page, such as Notepad, your email program, etc. Something that
does not have an http: in the first edit field.

Now Alt+Enter on that copied shortcut and edit the first field with your
browser file path followed by the http: of the web site you want.
Make sure to surround the file path with quotation marks if there are any
spaces in the folder or file names -- it cannot have any spaces.

Save the shortcut and then use F2 to rename the icon on your desktop.

Thanks again. Now for some troubleshooting. When I open properties and
enter my file path before the url of the BARD site everything looks
fine. I ok out then when I test it I am seeing a message that says
this page can't be displayed. When I go back into the properties I am
seeing http in front of my file path. I'm guessing this is the
problem, but I can't seem to get rid of that http. Everytime I delete
it and exit it gets put back. What am I doing wrong?

Regarding creating shortcuts to webpages using a browser other than the
default browser, it can be done as I previously stated, just remember
that
you
must add the path to the browser's executable first, then add the URL
second. Also know that the entire browser path must be put in quotes or
else

the
shortcut won't work.

Regarding creating shortcuts to webpages other than the default browser.

One must first include the path to the browser in quotes then add the URL
to

the webpage. Here's an example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Hello,

Not too long ago there was a discussion of how to make a shortcut to a
web site open with a particular browser that isn't your default
browser. I believe that discussion took place on this list, but I
can't find the relevant posts. Would someone be good enough to refresh
my memory on how to accomplish this?

Specifically what I want to do is open the NLS BARD web site using
firefox which is not my default browser.

Thanks for any help.
Kim

It works for me.
Are you making sure the "Target" field has the path to the browser in quotes followed by the web site like http://www.pbs.org

Perhaps you could spell out the steps you are using to create the shortcut?
