Re: NVDA and Firefox annoyance

Hi Group,


I know this is a controversial topic, but through this whole Quantum Firefox switch, I and many others have not had any issues with Firefox.  There is obviously something wrong because a significant number of people using screen access technology are having issues.  I just wish the screen reader developers could pin this one down. I have been using Firefox for 15 years now and through all of it with JAWS and NVDA on several systems going back to Windows XP, I have no major issues.


In addition, I am having good results with Microsoft Edge.  The only major issue I have there is with NVDA, visited VS unvisited links are not recognized.  If they ever fix this one in NVDA, that one will be near perfect as well.

You will have to turn off auto complete in the about:config

In the address bar type

About:config

A warning may appear Then click continue anyway if asked

Then search for

browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled

and change it to false by hitting enter

then you are done!

Hello,
When I use firefox in the address bar, I hear NVDA voicing out the address, or at least trying to fill it in, even though I unchecked autofill. Is there a way to fix this annoyance? Thanks.
Armando
