Re: Firefox browsing bug in NVDA 2018.4


This can't be assumed to be a bug in NVDA and I'm somewhat skeptical.  You mention the NVDA web site.  I get similar results with an old version of NVDA and Firefox.  And I see something like this happen sometimes on other sites.  But not on most.  If I move down the page, using the skip blocks of links command on the home page and, when I am at nonlink text, if I then turn off browse mode and tab. I am taken to the top when not in browse mode.  I am also taken to the top while in browse mode.  If, however, I stop on a link while down arrowing or moving with k, I can then tab and move to the next link or control, as expected.  This is true both with browse mode off or on.  If browse mode is off, I assume that the browser responds just as it would if no screen-reader were present.  So this may be a problem with coding on the NVDA home page, which is the only page I tested on the site, or it may be a browser problem.  I don't know if it could be an NVDA problem but based on what I've just reported I'm skeptical.

Subject: [nvda] Firefox browsing bug in NVDA 2018.4

When on a webpage, and any page at will work, tabbing to
the next link anywhere on that page will shoot me up to the top, and to
the first link on that page, no matter where I started.

Windows 10 home 64-bit.

Firefox 64.0, 64-bit.

NVDA 2018.4

While I would experience this behavior on past versions of NVDA, it is
now constant.
