Re: Forcing an NVDA Search rather than a built-in search function
We don't know if it's a general problem. Do you have Firefox? If not, all we know is that on your machine, there is no problem using Chrome. But we don't know if there would be a problem using firefox. I'd have to experiment to see what behavior I get on my machine using both the newest NVDA and the newest Firefox.

It seems to be a Firefox problem.
I just tried it in Chrome, and it works just fine.
I also tried it on your email message, and it worked.

Also, as of this morning, just now, I'm back to the *%$&^ behavior where when I'm hitting INS+CTRL+F I am not ever getting the NVDA search dialog box but always having the Firefox page search bar come up at the bottom of the screen. This is immensely frustrating for me and I cannot even begin to imagine the orders of magnitude of additional frustration that would be added were I depending on this to behave in a predictable way to actually get work done.
