Re: Button no longer works on website after Windows update

In waterfox on windows 7, which also did an update today, the button does not show up. However refreshing shows the cookies message the nvda/waterfox did not get the first time and then accept allows the button to be there and interacted with. My feeling on this is that there is a display of the main page, then a display of the cookie message, but the latter is not actually seen by nvda unless you force nvda and waterfox to reload. its a bit like on some sites with google bits when the place they should be is empty, but a refresh gets them back. Sometimes the site realises and says server not available, but in this case it seems nvda or woaterfox is unaware of the overlay completely until you do something to refresh it.

It reminds me of a very very old nvda bug where at start of firefox, the page would not seem to be there unless you open and close a menu or switched away and back or refreshed the page.

Subject: [nvda] Button no longer works on website after Windows update


Overnight, my computer was updated with the latest Windows update for
Windows 10 Professional. As a result, some buttons on a certain website no
longer function. They worked yesterday and they do not work today and the
only change I know of to my computer is the Windows update. The url is:

I have tried both Internet Explorer 11 and the latest version of Firefox.

There are 2 buttons on this page that I can no longer activate, one labeled
Member Login and another labeled Login as Site Admin. They can be quickly
navigated to using the B key. However, I cannot seem to get them to perform
their typical action using either the keyboard (I've tried Enter, Space and
Shift + Enter) or routing the mouse and pressing the slash key to simulate a
left mouse click.

If the button works, you will be presented with an edit box where you can
begin entering your name. There have been no changes made to the website. I
know this because I am one of its administrators.

I am using the latest released version of NVDA without any addins.
