Re: Something strange in Firefox

Hi Brian,

I have seen a number of references to Firefox 47.  I am running 46 now and I have updates set to automatic.  I wonder is this 47 a beta of some sort?  Maybe that's why people are having difficulties.  I am running Windows 8.1 64 bit. Maybe the 47 is for 32 bit???

Is this 47 again. I had to reinstall 46 a couple of weeks ago and turn off updates as for a staart it was much slower on single core systems and some add ons stopped working correctly, such as navigational sounds
I think this new version has some serious bugs to be ironed out, myself, as it also kept failing to go the pages the first time it was told complaining it was not foundd.
Obviviously I no longer have it, so cannot comment if this is yet another issue, but I've had no problems since going back.

Subject: [nvda] Something strange in Firefox

Good morning from sunny Iceland.

After the most recent updates I have found it impossible to copy the url of a homepage when I want to include the relevant address in a new document.

Previously I used the command alt+d, but it doesn't work anymore in Firefox. However Internet Explorer and GoogleChrome still have this command.

Any advice?

Best regards,

Arnthor Helgason
