I doubt it. When a dialog opens on a web
page, NVDA says the word "dialog." Have you gotten to the alert message or
heard its entire text? On the new page you open, what is this
option; is it a link? Instead of tabbing until you get to it on the
new page, use the screen-reader search function and search from the top of the
page for the word "open." See if you can find whatever it is on the
page. If you can't find it, I may find something in firefox that makes
finding the alert easier.

It calls itself an alert and I do get to it eventually by tabbing. Do you
still think it is a dialogue?

Is there a hotkey for the alerts about logging into a wifi network? I am
currently in a building where the wifi needs a sign in after 10 minutes of
inactivity and I can't figure out how to get to that sign in page quickly
and easily. For now, I am opening a new window in firefox and tabbing around
until I find the "open login page" option.
There must be a better way to do this.....

Alt a is announced as the allow command at the end of the

I'll write instructions in another message.
To tell Firefox not to offer to remember
passwords, do the following.

Alt t then o to open options.
After waiting a moment, tab once. You
are now in a list of categories.

If down arrowing stops moving you before you get

Once you get to security, start tabbing until you
get to a checkbox that says something like remember logins. Uncheck
it with the space bar. You won't be asked any longer.
There is no ok button in this dialog-like
structure. Settings take immediate effect. This is a web page
in the browser and since you are on a web page that mimics a dialog, do
whatever you want to do that you would do while on a web page after you
change the setting. That is, go to another page by using a book
mark, close the browser, etc.

I am using the extended service release of Firefox on
windows 10 machine with the stable release of NVDA. Sometimes Firefox will
put up notices, such as when it offers to remember passwords or when it
informs you that has blocked a redirection from the site. How can I access
these in order to either tell it I don’t want it to save a password or
that I do wanted to allow a redirection?
