Re: firefox issue

One of the common issues with firefox is that nvda seems to suggest that a button has focus, ie or to restart after an update for example. This is not the case. it needs you to use the shortcut to press it. I think somebody in the firefox dev team or maybe at nvda who writes the app module might like to apply their mind to this as it also affects alerts that say, we detect that this page is asking to be redirected or something similar and alt a makes this work, but its by no means always clear its not actually a button in focus.

There is a short-cut key to have Firefox remember a password, but I've

I'll tell you how you may try to do this which may help you in this and in
other similar situations where messages come up. also, there may be a
short cut command to move to the message, but I don't know it.

It doesn't remember it because you aren't telling it to in the menu or
activating the button. When you hear the message, move to the address bar
with control l. the message is probably somewhere around it. Try tabbing
a few times and see if you find something relevant. If you don't, return
to the address bar again with control l and shift tab a few times to see if
you find anything relevant.

However, before you do any of that at all, I'm not sure having browsers
remember passwords is a good idea. Others with more technical knowledge
will, I hope, comment, but I've seen one or more computer advisors
recommend against it as a security risk.

I think it's Firefox. Nowadays, whenever I try to have it remember a
particular password, the dialog asking me if I want Firefox to do this
keeps coming up, and I keep pressing the button to save the password, and
it comes up again. This happens for a while, and then when I just escape
out of that dialog, I lose speech altogether and have to re-start Firefox
before it will work properly. By the way, it never does remember the
