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

Hello Damien,

 

That was sort of what I was thinking as well. That certainly seems to be the most likely reason for this. I wasn’t aware Thunderbird did this too.

 

Thanks for confirming.

Hi,

In actual fact, I believe this could be a Windows issue, not NVDA. Other

programs such as Thunderbird will also launch if a command contains its

name as part of the string. Maybe it's some kind of aliasing system

which does a search for the strings of programs that use it?

Cheers,

Damien.
