Thank you,

Hello Gene,

I like the bookmark idea and will probably go with that.

To answer some of your questions:

It seems to be a series of buttons, I think 3 in total. I have
only ever heard the last two which say something along the
lines of "open login page" and "close this message," respectively.

Using brows mode to navigate by buttons doesn't work as these
buttons seem to not be in the main document. It was one of the
first strategies I tried.

For now, I think the bookmark option is the simplest solution.

Thank you!

I don't know anything about the add on someone else sent.
I thought of another solution that might be the easiest.
Go to the login page and make a bookmark. I can tell you
how to use the bookmarks search feature to find it quickly
and conveniently so you don't have to worry about where it
is in the book marks list. If it doesn't have a
distinctive name, give it one when you save it to make it
easy to find with the book marks search feature. Then open
a new page when you want to log in and use the book mark to
go directly to the login page. That may be the best solution.

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

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"

There must be a better way to do this.....

To tell Firefox not to offer to remember passwords, do
the following.
New main steps start on new lines:
Alt t then o to open options.
After waiting a moment, tab once. You are now in a list
of categories.
Start down arrowing until you get to security.
If down arrowing stops moving you before you get there,
up arrow once then continue down arrowing.
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
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
