Re: NVDA restarts when I go to Github page from Run dialog

Nicolai Svendsen

Hello Brian,


I have used both Firefox and Google Chrome for this. At first I thought it was getting cut off as well, since NVDA will restart if you only type nvda into the run dialog, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. If I type nvdaa instead of nvdaa, it doesn’t restart, but goes on to open the browser with the corresponding webpage address. If I enter nvda instead, NVDA just restarts and nothing else happens. It only happens with NVDA, and no other applications that can be launched from the run dialog box.


So this is kind of bizarre. I’m not really sure why this would occur at all. I’ve never had trouble actually doing this before.

          What web browser is set as your default?   It would be worth testing to see if this might somehow be linked to the browser being used, as odd as that might seem.

           The more you can narrow this down to a specific set of circumstances the better.

           I can imagine NVDA shutting down if the only thing being seen in the run dialog were to be NVDA.  Are you absolutely, positively certain that the entire URL was there?
