Re: what in the world is happening with firefox and nvda

Normally add ons are not the issue with Firefox. it seems to be pretty good at not letting them screw up the system. Most of the time the problem could be registration of dlls after a uninstall or the item I posted about in a new thread and implicated some words!

Hi All,
I'm new to the group and to NVDA, I'm a sighted user learning and setting up
for someone else.

I've just completed a new install of NVDA and Firefox 55.0.2 onto a Windows
10 Home 64bit laptop (HP Envy). In Firefox I cannot navigate properly, for
example pressing H does not take me to the next heading and neither can I
navigate to specific paragraphs to speak them. I'm using the Focus Highlight
add-on and the green highlight rectangle does not appear in Firefox, but it
does appear in other apps e.g. file explorer where I get both the red and
green highlight rectangles. If I go back to Firefox I get no green rectangle
again. For comparison I have been testing NVDA on Windows 7 and it works
properly, if I press H I get a green rectangle over a heading and can
down-arrow to the following paragraph (also FF55.0.2).

One critical point here I have just discovered - on Windows 10 if I launch
FF first and NVDA afterwards I get the problem. If I launch NVDA first and
FF second it seems to be OK (needs more testing to prove this is robust...).
On Windows 7 launch order is unimportant.
