Re: Firefox 40 question

Gerald Levy
 

Yes, I have noticed the same behavior with Firefox 40, and it seems to crash or freeze more frequently than previous versions. I'm so fed up with Firefox 40 that I installed the portable version of Firefox 35, which seems to be more stable andJAWS friendly. Keep in mind that unlike IE, you can have multiple versions of Firefox on your PC simultaneously.

Subject: Re: Firefox 40 question

I am finding that Firefox 40 keeps switching from one open tab to another without me doing anything but reading a page. It’s quite annoying. It also takes a very long time to load some web pages.

Is anyone else finding Firefox switching tabs on its own?

Thanks,

Russell

Hello, everyone.



Typically, with Firefox, I use the control L command, after which I can
paste a web site address into the edit box, and hit enter. I'm then able to
open The web site from that point.



However, I'm finding that the control L command no longer works with
Firefox 40.



Has anyone noticed this change, and are there good work-arounds?



I have gotten to the point where I actually prefer Firefox to Internet
Explorer for accessing and navigating web sites, so this apparent change in
Firefox behavior is somewhat disconcerting.



I'm using Jaws 16 and Windows 7 here.



Thank you.

Jaws talking a little too much in Windows 10

Maria S
 

Hi all. I first got this computer and Windows 8.1 was installed. I
always set my Jaws verbosity to intermediate and turn off tutor
messages. When I upgraded to Windows 10, I noticed that when I press
alt tab Jaws says something like "task switching, running
applicationslist box, name of program, number of apps". Maybe it did
this in Win8and I didn't notice but it's driving me nuts. I usually
only have a couple of windows open and I feel like I'm waiting forever
just to know which one I have in focus.

Does anyone have an idea what I can adjust to minimize how much of
this window information Jaws is giving me?

I also switched my synthesizer to a Vocalizer voice, and especially in
Twitter, some tweets just won't read. Sometimes the message starts
with an @ sign, as if in a reply, but sometimes it doesn't. I can't
figure this out. If anyone else is having this problem I'd be curious
to know if you've figured out how to trigger it.

Thanks, Maria


JAWS, iTunes, and questions

Jim Portillo
 

Hello,



I have a couple of questions. I've not used iTunes in a while using my JAWS
computer with Windows 7 and JAWS 16. I need to learn three things to be
able to use my iPhone with this computer and version of JAWS.

First, how do I create a playlist with music I might already have on the
computer?

Second, how can I transfer things like music or movies?

Finally, how can I convert music that is mainly in mp3 format?



Again, it's been a while, and I need a refresher, especially with this new
iTunes and JAWS for it to work with my iPhone 6.



Thanks.

In this situation, the only thing you need to do is to press F11 a second time to take Firefox out of Full-Screen Mode.

The second circumstance is unpredictable. All of a sudden, none of the commands will work, including the Alt key to bring up the menus. The only thing I have found that works to restore Firefox to working order is to reboot the computer.

When you were having trouble with CONTROL plus L, would the Alt key work to bring up the File Menu?

Re: Firefox 40 question

Brad Martin
 

I had that problem for a long time on some websites, but it hasn't happened to me in months! When I used to have that problem, it was generally when I had a tab open (but I wasn't on that tab), and that tab kept refreshing itself. When it refreshed, Firefox would start to read it and JAWS would act like I was on that tab, but in fact, I wasn't and interacting with the screen I thought was in front of me didn't work. But again, I can't remember the last time I had that problem.

Oddly, tonight my Firefox started crashing, and I realized my Adblock add-on had been disabled.

Subject: Firefox 40 question

Hello, everyone.



Typically, with Firefox, I use the control L command, after which I can
paste a web site address into the edit box, and hit enter. I'm then able to
open The web site from that point.



However, I'm finding that the control L command no longer works with
Firefox 40.



Has anyone noticed this change, and are there good work-arounds?



I have gotten to the point where I actually prefer Firefox to Internet
Explorer for accessing and navigating web sites, so this apparent change in
Firefox behavior is somewhat disconcerting.



I'm using Jaws 16 and Windows 7 here.



Thank you.

Night is the beta version of Aurora, and Aurora is the beta version for Standard.
Currently night is at version 42 i think, aurora is in 41, and standard in 40.
here you can try with the Aurora.

Re: Jaws 16 Problem with Jaws delay !!

HAMILTON
 

Hello:

If I understand the issue correctly, it sounds like you might need to change
your "typing echo" settings in JAWS for use with IE 11. Although the fact
that you hear "all" of what you typed into that field, sounds more like
something that would happen in that application. However, if it is
connected to "typing echo", insert+2 (upper-row of QWERTY keyboard) will
allow you to reset this setting to "character", "word", "word and
character", or "none. For this application, the setting "may" be on "none".
That would explain why you do not hear characters, or words, while you are
typing; but, I cannot explain why you do hear "all" of what you typed when
you have finished.

Nonetheless, in my view, it would be worth looking at the "typing echo"
setting for JAWS while you are actually in your IE 11. If you find that it
is set to "none", simply select your prefered setting, and save it for use
in that application. Please let me know if this works.

Firefox has 3 version. Night, Aurora and Standard.

Night is the beta version of Aurora, and Aurora is the beta version for Standard.
Currently night is at version 42 i think, aurora is in 41, and standard in 40.
here you can try with the Aurora.

Re: Firefox 40 question

Brad Martin
 

Tom and Gennie,

Control L is working fine for me with Firefox 40.0.3. I have had a couple of occasions where it didn't work for some reason, but they're few and far between. To Gennie's point about Firefox crashing, I discovered that the ads were most of the problem. I installed the Adblock add-on for Firefox, and most of my crashes went away. Occasionally a video will cause Firefox to crash even still, but it's way better than it was without Adblock. (Not to be confused with Adblock+ which I have not tried.)

Tom, I often enter a URL (or paste one) into the Windows Run box. So press Windows key and the letter r, then type or paste in the URL. If Firefox is not your default browser, the process is a little different. Press Windows key and the letter r, then type
firefox url
for instance
firefox www.google.com

There's your work around if you need it.

Yes, Have had this problem for several days. Firefox keeps crashing and has
to restart. Control-l let me type one web address, but when I tried
control-l for another address, it wouldn't work.

Subject: Firefox 40 question

Hello, everyone.


Typically, with Firefox, I use the control L command, after which I can
paste a web site address into the edit box, and hit enter. I'm then able to
open The web site from that point.


However, I'm finding that the control L command no longer works with
Firefox 40.


Has anyone noticed this change, and are there good work-arounds?


I have gotten to the point where I actually prefer Firefox to Internet
Explorer for accessing and navigating web sites, so this apparent change in
Firefox behavior is somewhat disconcerting.


I'm using Jaws 16 and Windows 7 here.


Thank you.


Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

Re: Firefox 40 question

Tom Behler
 

Well, if a fix cannot be arrived at for Firefox 40, I'd be happy to update to FF 41, if that indeed solves the problem.

If someone can tell me how to do this, I can give it a try.

Otherwise, I'll continue to follow the thread for possible Firefox 40 fixes.

I can't even get it to work with one address, let alone multiple addresses.

Would be interested in any fixes people come up with.

For now, reluctantly, it's back to Internet Explorer.
