Re: The New Firefox version


I have fixed my issue round about and found a faster way in navigation as a result, its a bit meh like if I screw up a url or something but I can avoid the issue its not that bad now I can get round it I just have to be on my toes.
Ofcause since mozilla updates in the background it can be a bit of a shocker when it changes.
Sadly there doesn't seem to be any address box view where things will just work.
I really wish it wouldn't convert to listbox mode because well its just bad.
If there was something that would revert the address box to what it was then that would be fine.

My Firefox just updated to version 50 and I am not having any of the problematic issues that others have reported.
I am still using NVDA v16.1-- have not upgraded yet to the newer versions of NVDA.
After reading one list member's comments saying that NVDA v16.4 will likely work fine with the latest Firefox, I plan to wait for this one to come out before upgrading this year.

Thanks everyone, for what you've shared.

Firefox is indeed getting worse and
worse. I'm looking into abandoning
it altogether, and would already have done so, if it weren't
Webvisum, which I need fairly frequently.

Rumola never worked for me, so I'm stuck for now... Until
