Re: Firefox 58


I should have said, do a Google search to make sure that you are going to the correct site.  Check the address displayed for the site in the result you are going to go to to make sure the address is correct.  In other words, just because a Google result shows a site that looks like the one you want, without checking the address displayed below the link to go to the page, you can't be sure if it is correct or a site put up by a phisher or a malware distributor.  In otherwords, if you search for Mozilla or download firefox, or whatever and you are looking at a result you want to follow the link for, check the link.  If the link is different in some way, mozilla but spelled with one l, or something else not correct or expected that isn't the real site.  for a well known site like Mozilla, this is unlikely to happen.  Google shows results based on popularity and the real site is very likely to come up.  But you should check addresses to be sure.

Your message cannot be answered as written.  My guess about what you are doing can be discussed.  for one thing, what do you mean you are using Google.  Google is a search engine.  Google Chrome is a browser.  If you typed something like Mozilla into Google, you wouldn't get  The first result would be for the Mozilla web site which has an org extension.  My guess is that you are using Google Chrome and that you typed into the address field and went there.  That is not Mozilla.  If you type an address and are taken somewhere that doesn't look right or is unexpected, then do a Google search to see what the actual address is.  And if you aren't absolutely sure of an address, don't go to it.  Search for the site you want using google.  There are malware distributors and phishers who purchase site names that are similar to the actual names of well known sites.  That's so that if people mistype because of a typographical error, they might be taken to a malicious site that may try to download malware onto the machine or try to get personal information from the person by looking like the real site and asking questions.  I'm not saying that is or isn't a malicious site, I don't know.  I'm saying that it is dangerous to go to addresses you aren't sure of.

If I use google and go to  a web page comes up that
seems to have no way to access it.  If you try to tab or use any of the
hot keys to move around the screen the only thing NVDA says is download
firefox.  Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
