Re: lock NVDA + f2
That isn't what I described. What I said is that if you manually turn forms mode on, it will stay on. You are discussing behavior in browse mode. If you turn browse mode on, then the behavior you describe will occur unless you set NVDA not to change to forms mode automatically. It doesn't matter if you turn browse mode on manually or if it is on because it is on when you start browsing, the behavior doesn't change. Controling this behavior is available in the Browse Mode settings. I believe the check box you uncheck is Automatic focus mode for focus changes. There is another check box, Automatic focus mode for caret movement, which I also have unchecked. I don't remember what it does but others will probably explain it.

Subject: Re: [nvda] lock NVDA + f2
It happens with every single web site I encounter that requires input in
multiple fields. I can set NVDA to browse mode (that's the default right?)
then every time I encounter an edit field, NVDA automatically switches to edit
mode regardless of whether I've previously told it to be in browse mode or
not. It happens 100 percent of the time on each and every web site I
encounter edit fields on, so it is definitely not a once in a while thing.
Find yourself any web site that requires logins, or perhaps one with a signup
form, and the behavior is always exactly the same, whether I've set it
specifically to browse mode or not.
