Re: Mouse navigation and Chrome

I can confirm this behavior in Chrome and Firefox. From a visual standpoint the mouse is routed to the top left corner of the search button, but it seems it is about 1mm to far left of the button. The mouse pointer doesn't change to a hand with its pointing finger. Moving the mouse a tick to the right gives me the pointing finger hand and numpad-slash works.

Subject: [nvda] Mouse navigation and Chrome

I'm trying to route the mouse in Chrome and am running into issues.

I'm playing incremental games that need mouse hovers to work reliably.
NVDA's mouse navigation doesn't work very well.

As a very basic example which requires not too much setup, I can demonstrate this easily enough on Google.

I should be able to search Google, using mouse navigation to click the button. I'm doing the following:
1. Restart NVDA with add-ons disabled.
2. Start Chrome, navigate to
3. Type test into the search field.
4. Hit f in browse mode until I find the Google Search button.
5. NVDA+numpad / to route the mouse, and click with numpad /.

When I do this, my page doesn't change. NVDA doesn't seem to be clicking the button.

What can I do to make things work better?
