Re: NVDA Responsiveness


I doubt this problem is limited to Firefox.  It would probably occur with any browser.  There is no solution except to close and reopen the browser.  Another list member said this problem would be fixed and I've seen that elsewhere as well.

Lots of people say they have the firefox problem and steps are underway to
fix it. if you go away from firefox and then come back does this fix the
Sometimes Firefox's focus and nvdas way of obtaining it can be a bit flaky,
especially on the 64 bit version of ff57.

As for the freezes, I've noticed this on windows 7, and I suspect its a max
out of the processor core nvda is using. Being a dynamic issue its hard to
pin it down.

I have a few questions related to NVDA's responsiveness:

Sometimes, particularly when I'm on a webpage, NVDA just freezes for several
seconds. I have no idea why, and it doesn't seem to be happening with JAWS.

Likewise, NVDA will randomly jump focus from the window I'm in and just say
"pane"; I then have to close that window to get back to where I was.

Finally, if I have a page open in Firefox and unload NVDA, once I reload
NVDA I can no longer read the page; it is as if NVDA only stays in focus

Using NVDA 2017.3 on Windows 10.
