Re: fire fox 58 is out
People should make a point of notifying the accessibility group that until the feature that stops page refreshes is added to firefox again, it won't be acceptable as a browser. This feature was removed in version 57. It was found in the general section of advanced settings in options. It said, roughly, accessibility, notify me when web pages want to redirect or refresh. Giving the blind user control of whether pages refresh is essential.

Nope, I downloaded it directly from the mozilla site and I'm shure that
is the release version, however I checked that in the about menu. Also
I'm using next from about NVDA 0.6 (well, at that time dev branch)
except in my work where I use stable.
So, as I've said, it works better than 57, is obviously faster, but on
complex sites ESR works better and with Facebook standard simply doens't
work (continuous updates of FB turns FF 58 with NVDA unusable) probably
I need to test FF on other sites for example Google Drives which is a
site I use periodically, but browser is important, probably one of the
most important parts of the system, so I prefer stability.
