I find that for example any ad blocker now cripples the useful file hippo update check utility. This is because it seems to be put on screen as if it was an advert from another server. I've tried to allow it but that failed. The only way to get this is to turn off your ad blocker in firefox it seems.
It never used to be this way, so either the ad blockers are too smart for their own good or file hippo has hobbled the feature if you do not allow ads, but allowing ads on their platform slows it down and makes it very hard to download what you want as apposed to try me come on adverts.

Whatever is blocking things, the feature should be able to be turned off and perhaps what it blocks, modified.

Thanks David for all the tips on Edge.


I use Firefox a lot; I don't seem to experience the issues many others
are reporting here. It's still very fast on my machine, but it's become
a lot more cumbersome, and tends to block too much stuff totally
unrequested.


I mostly use Chrome, and definitely Edge for pdf and epub files, because
it retains links, which Qread doesn't do.


Ciao,

Ollie

Hi!

NVDA is faster in Edge, you can open PDFs and Epub books, and you can
save or back your favorites as an html file.

Also, Edge loads pages for me, much faster than the later versions of
firefox.

Have a great one, by the way, I use Chrome, most of the time, it works
much better, in my opinion, than the latest versions of firefox.

I am running the latest NVDA master along with Fall Creaters update of

Win10 and finally decided to check out Edge. I do have a few questions.

For those of us who are blind, what advantages does Edge have over
Firefox?

Also, there doesn't seem to be a way to backup Favorites unless this is

managed through Syncing. I am already logged into my Microsoft account.
