Re: Edge and/or NVDA crashes


I wander if this thing has to do with waterfox and its crashes, the brouser does actually hang on a lot of pages.

Could this behaviour seen on edge happen because of nvda, so far the main dev is not sure what has changed in the latest version between 08 and 09 because all the updates were simple updates and without addons like my script blocker things crash but faster.

Either the program hangs or it hangs and nvda hangs to till waterfox is closed with narator.

I thought it was my cpu type or firmware but now I am not sure.

strategy to press f6 while loading, and once it finishes loading,
press shift f6. Otherwise I have to restart NVDA all the time

I don't know if that helps. But with JAWS these very frequent issues seem
not to happen.

In Chrome I can see that the browser window freezes. NVDA keeps running.
But I think that it must have something to do with the combination of NVDA
and Chromium or something like that. The normal view of Gmail is something
that probably many people use with Chrome. ;)

It does not happen with Firefox. I'm going to test it with Chrome.

Does this happen with other browsers, say Chrome?

Subject: [nvda] Edge and/or NVDA crashes

Hi all,

when I work with edit fields or combo boxes in Edge NVDA or Edge often
crashes. I'm not sure which of the programs causes the issue. NVDA is
just silent when it happens.

Sometimes I can restart NVDA by pressing a shortcut I set up and then it
works again. But it also can happen that NVDA does not restart. Then it
usually helps to start and close Narrator (CTRL+WINDOWS+ENTER) and that
seems to help NVDA to speak again.

Mostly I'm experiencing these crashes when I'm writing a mail on or when I'm uploading tracks on Soundcloud.

While writing this message, I had to restart NVDA six times cause it
stopped working.

I use Windows 10, latest stable version of Edge and NVDA 2020.2.

Does anyone know what the reason could be? It is not nice! :)
