Gene, yes; a while ago, I changed that setting and had to delete my TOR browser bundle and reinstall it to get screen reader support back.
Chris, what do you mean by default profile? I thought that the profile data is stored in the directory with the bundled Firefox. Is there an additional location I should check? I usually reset profiles by renaming the old profile directory and letting Firefox create a new one.

Have you tried it with the default profile ?

There’s also a option to prevent accessibility feature from reaching the browser under privacy and security

Check if that’s not been checked

Or you might want to run the com registration tool in nvda just to eliminate that  issue

Hmm, Chris, it may be a local configuration problem for me if you are not having issues. Everything that is not the web area of the page works, meaning that I can access the browser's menus and address bar for example. I also tried downloading the alpha version of TOR to see if it solves the problem.

Brian, are you referring to plain Firefox when doing alt+shift+n? TOR browser and regular Firefox do not appear to do anything when executing that keybinding.

Thanks much,

As an aside, and for the purposes of comparison and diagnosis, if you happen to be a Brave user you can invoke a private window that uses Tor (ALT+SHIFT+N).
