Re: Windows 10: Firefox 59 Unusable with NVDA

Firefox has a PDF reader.  I don't know if its built into the browser or if it's an add on but whatever it is, it is distributed as part of the browser.  Why yours doesn't work, I don't know.

John,

I just tried that now that you described it but, no luck! I still got a blank screen when the link opened and no sign of adobe or any effort to display the pdf document.

All the best,

Oh, here's how I opened the link. I went to the brochures page, got down to the brochures, highlighted a link, November 2014 or whatever with the arrow keys, and pressed enter, specifically enter on the main keyboard.
I didn't touch the number pad in any of this. It didn't show up as being in tables for me, but I have include layout tables unchecked.
