Re: NVDA doesn't always see buttons on a web page

you are using an inefficient procedure.  Just be in forms mode, type what you want to search for, then press enter.  When the results page loads, NVDA automatically goes back to browse mode.  You don't have to change it manually.  When you are in forms mode and in a google edit field and this is generally true on sites with search features, the sites are designed so that pressing enter while in the search field activates the search button.  You don't have to move to it. And when new pages load, using NVDA default settings, you are returned to browse mode automatically.
