Re: Problem with NVDA and some Firefox addons which activate via context menu

I'm almost certain that the new Firefox add ons work for mouse and nothing else. I suspect Firefox as older add ons that do still run on the new one still modify the old context menu or present their settings in a different standard menu option.
Of course if you use Waterfox you can use all the old add ons and I'd suggest it works better in most other respects than the new version of Firefox does.

Subject: [nvda] Problem with NVDA and some Firefox addons which activate via context menu


Hi,
For some Firefox addons, e.g. ContextSearch (still some more, but I have already deleted and forget there names lol) mentioned that these addons can be activated via context menu.

However after installing them, I pressed keyboard aplication key to bring up the context menu inside a web page, the menu has no change. Others tested it out that the context menu only works if they use mouse to select something and right click with mouse.

Does it related to how NVDA work? or it is something that Firefo need to fix?
Thanks.
William
