Maybe somebody might like to raise a ticket on Firefox then?

Alternatively, raise it in nvda and let one of the devs do it in Firefox. However if this issue affects 2017.2 differently to the latest snaps maybe we have a combination issue. Certainly though up to the last version of 55 I had no issues and have not changed the nvda version since then. Since 54 is now working as it should I would suggest the biggest culpriit is Firefox, its another one of those what I call cleck past with a mouse issues where if a given part of the page is not launched with focus, a mouse user hardly cares as one click and they are in, to use it gets more complicated.

If it didn't happen in the previous version of Firefox, why would this be an NVDA bug? It may be that NVDA will have to be modified because of a change in Firefox, but I would think the logical cause would be Firefox.

It just did this and now it opens in some kind of bookmark panel.
One has to tab to find the actual displayed page. I am thinking this is a
Firefox bug. Toolbar for bookmarks is definitely off.

Anyone else noticed this?
