Re: NVDA-2016.2 Slows Down with Firefox


Jacob Kruger
 


What I found is that, as long as I generally keep webvisum add-on disabled in firefox, the combination works fine - same windows 10 64 bit OS, and latest NVDA - and, can still turn on webvisum when I know I will need to use it to handle a captcha, but, both firefox and NVDA sort of immediately go into a go-slow mode if it's turned on.
 
Stay well

Hi,
I use 64-bit version of Windows 10 and NVDA 2016.2.1 without any problems. Both Mozilla product, Fireworks and Thunderbird work correctly.
