Re: Firefox and potential timing issues

Yes its a bit like the old explorer issue of scrolling getting ahead of reading.
Could be maybe just sluggishness in the reading by nvda as I cannot actually see the screen these days.

I used Firefox 48 last night on an xp machine and realised it was actually better at this than windows 7 with my quad core and huge amounts of memory.

I seriously wonder if all this pretty stuff is taking its toll on speeds.

Subject: [nvda] Firefox and potential timing issues

Hello list,
has anyone else noticed that when quickly arrowing in a web page in
Firefox, or quickly hitting the same navigational key, such as k, a few
times, some elements are spoken twice? It is as if something couldn't keep
up. Also, hitting a navigational or arrow key a few times then stopping,
the cursor sometimes jumps back.
Here is an example. Let's say there are numbered lines on a web page, like
Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Now, when quickly hitting down arrow repeatedly, I might get:
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4
Line 3
Line 4
Line 5
Line 4
Line 5
Sometimes this or a similar issue affects even the read all function, so
that it double-speaks some words or parts of words, like so:
Mary had a little lamb, its fur was white as snow, had a little lamb and
everywhere that Mary went, the went, the lamb was sure to go.
Are there any known workarounds or at least similar observations with
possible theories as to what might be going on?
Kind regards,
Felix Gr├╝tzmacher
