I don't have any opinion.  I'm asking so others may discuss your answer if they know or have any opinion.

I'm using Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit).
When I try to enter the field NVDA just doesn't perform the action. Do you know that sound error.wav ? That's what I get.
You think it may be due the Firefox version?

This may not matter, but are you using Quantum Firefox, that is, a version starting with 60X?  You may be saying that any way you try to turn on forms mode, it doesn't turn on.  But this needs to be clarified.  if you use the command NVDA key space, do you hear the tone that tells you that forms mode is on?  Can you then up and down arrow through the page?  I'm trying to figure out what the problem is.  Is it that text isn't entered into the field even though forms mode is on or is it that forms mode can't be turned on?
At this point, we don't know if the problem has anything to do with NVDA.  Discussing these sorts of questions may help us find out.

But I can't even write something when this add-on is enabled. I just can't enter on the field to do it.

You said NVDA enter in your message.  If you don't read messages before sending, it is a good idea.  You may make mistakes when writing that you catch when reading before sending.  I read mail before sending and I see errors in commands that I made when writing and I suspect this is common..

Hi Quentin,
To change the mode I use NVDA+spacebar, what gives me a error every time I try until I restart my browser.
I noticed it writing on the m.facebook message field, do you know?
No, I can't see the red lines you said, even not knew about them lol
I tested it writing something wrong and then I clicked where was writen "protected by grammarly", something like this.
After the second click it showed me some suggestions to the word I've typed.

Hi Marcio,

I do have the Grammarly add-on active in Firefox, but I don't seem to have any problem switching between browse and focus modes.  I don't normally use NVDA+enter to do it though - do you have a particular site you need to do that on?

If I go to say I can move in and out of the edit box changing the contents of it as I like.  Even with automatic switching between modes disabled, I can enter and escape to change modes, or NVDA+spacebar and it all works as it should.

My other question is, do you have enough sight to see Grammarly's red lines, or have you found a way to detect what it has highlighted with NVDA?  Because I've never managed to get it to work with NVDA.  It doesn't break anything for me, but I just can't get NVDA to see what it is flagging anywhere.

Hello folks,
Anyone here is using Grammarly add-on?
If so, you might already know what it's like.
If not, let me try to explain.
Grammarly was supposed to be a spell checker, what it really does and very well.
What happens, however, is that the add-on is conflicting with NVDA on the exchange between focus and browse mode.
Every time I try to write something with this add-on enabled, I'm not able to do NVDA enter in the field so  I can type. So, if I want to type anything, I need to restart Firefox, aim the field and type without exiting, since once I do it, goodbye, I will never again be able to do NVDA let me type on the field.
 Well, the add-on is really very good, but if I can't find any way to solve this problem, surely I will prefer to let it disabled as I'm doing right now so I can type normally and without troubles.
If anyone uses it or even have any possible solution, please give me a hand. Any help will be highly appreciated.
