Re: NVDA with Spybot and Mozilla

Brian's Mail list account

Well, not sure about the latter as I subscribe to the mail list for issues and this allows email to be used to comment on tickets on github. I do find, even with modern browsers, a little like a system over engineered for many tasks that in the end fills with clutter the user is not going to need and clever little non standard bits.
However getting back on topic. yes you can stop Firefox from updating, but I suppose you then leave yourself open to breaches.
If you have a 64 bit machine then Waterfox is quite good.
I still find, even on windows 7 that the new Firefox versions crash more and do not provide good audio feedback of when pages are loaded etc.

hi, me too.
i have firefox 52 and never update it.
you can do uncheck automatic update, in tools, options, advance,
update and set firefox to never check for update. as i did.
also, you can remove maintenance service in control panel add remove
programs or programs and features.
i also, did this task in about:config to be sure never update for firefox!
although i have windows xp and fortunately updating to firefox quantum
is not possible on xp.
but unfortunately github became a little unsupported with firefox 52.
for example: i cant follow nvda milestones anymore or edit my written comments.

I suspect that will be the view of reliable sources you check. I don't know
anything about this source, but it looks reliable to me.

Hello Group,

To follow up with Gene and others:

I am using FF version fifty-two presently.
Again, I want to stay with this, and turn off the occasional notices
to update to FF 63 or whatever the numeric. I am not sure how to do
that or if I can?

Here is the link implying Spybot 2.7, which is on my computer,
contains anti-virus. My comment follows.
Here comes 2.7 - Spybot Anti-Malware and Antivirus : Spybot Anti ... Options
May 3, 2018 - This is the new Spybot – Search & Destroy 2.7.64. We are
proud to present a new version of Spybot – Search & Destroy that will
give you not only new features, but better security and faster scans.

Comment: I am in search of an easy to use AV program and found Avast
difficult to run to install. I am not happy with Microsoft Security
Essentials, and AVG is difficult to update on my own as a blind
person. Thanks.
