So not necessarily so in some cases.
I doubt portable versions are out of date.
I got a version shortly after quantum came out which was current then and,
though I don't use firefox much on my Windows 7 machine, it has often told me
updates are available. What do you base the statement that it is out of

You could use a portable version of Firefox but they are out of date and
would not reflect your current version.
Secondly let me clarify I didn't mean new Firefox profile in your current
user on windows.
I meant a new window user account for testing, what you do there would be
seperate to your original setup. This would allow you to gradually start
from scratch, start just with narrator which i just tested and it works with
the extensions part of Firefox, enough to give basic navigation.
You might have to also install a fresh Firefox.
Try running it without any additional addons just to see if all is well
with the world.
Then if everything is working install nvda without any addons and test
Note When people say to install a fresh copy of Firefox
in your current user Firefox leaves a file relating to various settings and if
you dont uninstall Firefox before installing new copy it will use these files
and if they are corrupted in some way your problems can continue or even get
Firefox also has a cache it uses which becomes larger over time and which
also can cause problems, you can clear it, this is how
Do read this carefully because its best to keep your logon info for sites
intact unless you have kept info about them somewhere else.
Also if you do create new windows user set it to admin, turn any updates in
Firefox off to preserve functionality to serve as a backup if things go wrong
in your usual user account.
Another good idea is to create a portable copy of nvda on a memory stick to
preserve a functional version to fall back on.
Bounce an email back if you need any help as we all need a hand from time
to time. Or skype me adrian.mark.pocock
Also please give me an idea if you are navigating purely by audio or audio
and magn, the reason i ask this is so i can tailor my help to your needs as i
might do something different to someone else as i you both together.

I haven't tried anything you said. I'd like so
much to try, though.
Assuming this suggestion would be for the browser,
how can I create a new user in Firefox?
Also saying about a portable version, do you
suggest me trying it with NVDA or also with the browser?
Thank you so
much for the time trying to help me out :)

Have you tried using a portable version to see if it is your present
install or nvda not functioning properly.
There is a additional add-on for nvda for extra support for Firefox and
You could also try creating a new user for testing per pose and see if
problems still occur.
I personally do not have any problems in the ext section by tabbing and
using basic arrow keys.
If any of this helps, hope you resolve this frustrating issue.

I'm getting a strange behavior from
I'm not sure when or where it actually has started, bu I
have a feeling that it started after the last update I got.
is, I can't hear NVDA saying anything but "unknown" when navigating
through the options on the extensions' section.
So, anyone else
having this issue? Is there I can try to solve it?
Things I've tried
Still, none of these atempts gave me any
Thanks in advance :)
