I haven't tested this in Windows 7. I havbe a
Windows 7 machine but I seldom use it on line, using it instead as a recording
machine with my stereo, TV radio, and other such uses. I go online with it
on occasion but not regularly.
In Windows XP, when I launch firefox or Chrome, it
either takes a long time for NVDA to move to the browser wwindow, or I may have
to go to the desktop and then alt tab around to get NVDA to be aware of the
Window. Often, if I just tab around, it is unaware of the window.
It sounds as though this, or a similar problem, or

Yes, that's what I would also consider the natural response. For me,
unfortunately, it doesn't always see those focus changes in the first
I'll do some more testing with different timing constellations, for
example, I'll wait until hard drive activity is very low before trying again.
Maybe there's a pattern.
Any ideas, anyone, if it's Windows not raising the events, or NVDA failing
to process them? Is there a way to find out easily?

I use a braille display. When I start Firefox NVDA shows the
first link on my home page, because that is where Firefox
has placed the
cursor. i have always considered this the natural response. If I want to type
something in the address
bar I press Alt+d.
