Re: NVDA Web Browser Problem

The problem was that I had uninstalled MathPlayer, and that removed a component NVDA uses for browsers. Reinstalling MathPlayer restored that unknown component, and now NVDA works with Firefox and Internet Explorer.
JAWS apparently does not use this unknown component. Note that this unknown component is not part of NVDA because uninstalling NVDA and reinstalling NVDA does not fix this problem.

Someone else reported a similar thing and noted the solution for them was to alt+tab away from Firefox and back. It's not an ideal solution obviously, but I'd be curious to see if that helped. That issue is: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/5550
There's another bug for a similar thing, saying "unknown" after reading the page title. Often (in the case of this user), waiting a moment after that, NVDA would go on to read the page: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/4882
Finally, another problem that can cause this if it's happening in all browsers, is it could be a system component. This thread has a number of ideas: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/2807
Finally, if you could get the log file to send to me that might help too. Info on the log file available here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps
