I love the bookmarks in Firefox! All I have to do to get to
the site I want is to hit control+shift+b to get to the bookmark
library, then, with first-letter navigation, I quickly find what I
want. for example, hitting a once will put my cursor on the Amazon
link, and I just hit enter. I love it! Much easier, in my opinion,
than navigating favorites in IE. BTW, hello to everyone. I'm a
fairly brand-new NVDA user and loving it so far.

I don't know what you dislike about the firefox book mark
system. But again, rather than assuming, if you see something
you don't like, don't assume. Ask about it. You may find if
you ask questions about things you don't like, that there are
ways to do the thing you dislike that are far better than
whatever you are doing.

Works with FireFox 59 and NVDA 2018.1?
My only problem with Chrome is the Bookmark Manager. Really is
a headache to use with NVDA. Don't understand why neither
browser adopted a bookmarks system similar to Internet
Explorer's Favorites. Amazed there isn't an add-on available for
either to bring that Windows Explorer more accessible navigation
to managing Bookmarks on FireFox and Chrome.
That's the only thing I really mis about IE to be honest.

I use both browsers depending on what I need to get done on
what site. Firefox works better for some whereas chrome is
just so blazing fast and responsive.

I really love how well NVDA 2018.1 works with FireFox 59.
So much so, I'm slowly drifting away from using Chrome.

I use Firefox ESR still, for

or something like that. Luckily the main one I really
wanted to sign up with, IMDB, has a really good audio
one now. I have tried to use this add-on for years and
there always seems to be some problem or other with
it. I’m willing to play with it a little more but I’m
at the point of writing it off as a lost cause. Others
have reported plenty of success, but I see just as
many comments claiming it doesn’t work, and the last
time I checked, its only comments on the Mozilla
add-ons page were negative. SO yes, I’m very bemused
by the whole thing. I wouldn’t personally let this
add-on stand in the way of using Firefox 59.
You are cutting off your nose
to spite your face. I don't know how much you know
about this question but making a definite statement
that you won't do something at the start of such a
discussion isn't a good way to get information. You
may be unaware of information that might change your
mind and you may be less likely to get such
information if you say you won't do something.
You probably don't need to
use Webvism on a lot of sites. If you use an old
compatible version of Firefox with sites that you
want to use Webvism for, you are probably not
increasing your security risk to a meaningful
extent. You can use a current version of Firefox
for all other sites. And, for now, using a portable
version of the ESR version of Firefox isn't
increasing your security risk at all. The current
ESR version is compatible with Webvism and will
continue to receive security updates until the
summer. I believe august, but I'm not sure.
Part of being a good blind
computer user, that is, of getting the most out of
the system and programs, is not to make arbitrary
decisions based on what is fair or not fair. The
question is, what works, is there a meaningful
reason not to use what works. And does whatever it
is work well enough to use it at all or when
compared with alternatives? Those are meaningful
evaluation questions. Fairness is not a meaningful

[nvda] Any Captcha Solving Add-on Works with
FireFox 59 and NVDA 2018.1?
I really wish there was a way to make Webvisum
work with the new FireFox 59 browser, but I fear this
project is dead!
Is there any other free captcha solving add-on I
can use that works with FireFox 59 and NVDA 2018.1?
Don't think it is fair we have to use an older,
outdated FireFox browser to gain access to Webvisum,
and I refuse to do so.
Has anyone found a work-around to this on-going
nusome for users of screenreaders browsing the web?
