Gene, how in Thunderbird would I extract your personal e-mail
address from your post to the list?
Seeing I was mainly discussing JAWS, not NVDA, I boobooed. I
didn't read the e-mail headers correctly, and thought this was on
a totally different list which sometimes discussez JFW. I consider
my message further to be off topic for this list.
I'd like however to try your suggestion, and if it doesn't work,
e-mail you privately so we can keep trouble shooting... that is...
of course, if you're OK with that.
Alas, thank you for your help.

Maybe you should use NVDA with Firefox for a time and JAWS
with it only if necessary for some reason.
Also, your problem may be that
JAWS isn't lining up what is in the buffer with the actual
control you want to work with. Try the following:
Press the left mouse button
instead of enter. Don't route anything or change to any other
cursor than the virtual PC cursor. Just press the left mouse
button instead of enter.
I have one or two other
suggestions that might help but if this one solves the
problem, trying the others won't be necessary.

I'm coming in on this thread extremely extremely late, so forgive
this's been already mentioned. I have managed to get so much mail
inbox these last few days of abscence, that I can't possibly go
One thing with JAWS 2018 and the latest build of Firefox 61 that
seeing is an issue where you'll be on something which is clickable
a link, or a dropdown, or something of sort. You either hit enter,
space bar, and the stupid dad blamed thing either won't do
all, or more 9 times out of 10, it will jump me focused on to my
taskbar. In fact, one time, I hit enter on a link, not even a
link, and the stupid thing opened my Windows 10 Mail app.
Excuse my language, but, what the hell!
Absolutely this didn't used to happen, and honestly, I can't
when it started. Ever since Firefox decided to go Quantom, things
just totally totally gone down hill with it. I get that VFO is
their best with what they have to fix things, which I appreciate.
their defense, I get totally that they're trying, but I wonder how
of this is really VFO breaking things, vs. how much is Mozilla
things. I'm inclined to think more the ladder.
I'm admittedly not the biggest fan of Chrome on the Windows
maybe on Android, and on the mac, but not Windows. I'm not totally
why, but yeah... It's not something I can put my finger on. I just
care for it.
Anyway, I'd be curious if any of you all have seen this behavior
well. I'm told that supposedly, I'm not the only one experiencing
