Re: NVDA 2018.3.1rc1 fix for Firefox crashing


If you are comparing what happens with the Quantum version of Firefox to what happened in versions that aren't quantum concerning refreshes, an important feature was removed from quantum and I consider it essential that people let those responsible for accessibility know about this. 
There was a setting before Quantum that would have the browser tell you if a page wanted to refresh or redirect.  You would manually have to approve the action.  That option is no longer available in Quantum  That may be why the page refreshes now and not in whatever version you were using before.

Update, rebooted my system after NVDA update and the website still acts
as if it's refreshing.
No longer does NVDA seem like it wants to crash. Just the refreshing
proble at my home page.
