Hi Mary,

 

If you are using a 64-bit version of Windows, I would generally use 64-bit versions of software, where available.  You should be able to use 32-bit versions of most things (I think 7Zip is one that comes to mind that doesn't work), and now that we have released NVDA 2018.3.1 you should be ok to keep using the 32-bit version of Firefox if you choose.

 

In any case, do please let me know if you have any more problems.


Regards

Quentin.

Thanks, quinton. I think I really should update to the 64-bit version, since the reason I originally got the 32-bit version seems no longer relevant. I would like to replace my 32-bit version of the extended release that I think his version 60, with the 64-bit version. But I haven’t done that yet. I have to admit to being not all that great on windows after a several your absence doing mostly Mac and moving from XP to Windows 10. Slow learner.

Hi Mary,

 

No, all feedback is good, and indeed it does indicate what I suspected - there likely is some kind of issue at play, but it isn't affecting EVERYONE who uses Firefox, or even everyone using 32-bit Firefox.  Interested to hear if you do have any issues though.

 

Regards

Quentin.

I think I’m going to muddy the waters. I also have the 32-bit version of Firefox, and I just upgraded to the newest NVDA. I am running the latest stable windows, which I think is 1803? And sure enough, after installing NVDA, I had Firefox already open. When I altered to it, I got a crash. However, when I started fire fox again, it worked fine and has continued to do so. It’s only been a couple of webpages. And I still need to reboot the computer after the installation of  nvDA. But it’s interesting that aside from the initial single crash, it worked.

>> Hello everyone,
>> I updated NVDA to 2018.3 and tried to launch firefox.  The crash reporter screen came up and I tried to start a new session without result.  I have reverted to NVDA 2018.1.1 and firefox loads normally.  It also does when running NVDA 2018.2 which I was running before.  I have the installation file of the former version on my laptop so used that.  I noticed someone else having issues with firefox with NVDA 2018.3.  Is this a problem with firefox or with NVDA?
