Re: Error in Firefox

Uninstalling office causes such a problem but in this case, the registry fixing tool couldn't solve it. Since the problem uninstalling Office causes is unregistered dll files, when you ran system restore, it may have corrected the problem by reverting the registry and now everything is registered. If the problem was something else caused by the uninstallation, System Restore corrected it. You said there was a missing dll file. System Restore would replace it if you ran a restore point from before it was missing.

Well, System Restore worked.

I sure wish I knew what caused the problem in the first place?

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

I tried reinstalling firefox. I also tried running a temp copy of NVDA. I also reinstalled NVDA.

None worked.

I tried with Narrator and that will not even let me browse, so I think this must be some kind of system file issue.

I ran file check and dism no errors.

I’m trying windows restore.

Hi



Which did you try re installing the copy of nvda or the browser?



So the resetting of the browser did not work?



Did you try the portable copy of nvda to see if it works correctly with the browser some times it is better to grab a new copy of nvda then try it as a temp copy to see if you get the same results. If it works correctly in the browser, then I would do a reset of nvda. But when you do that make sure that you turn it off then back on and get the message you get when you first install nvda.



There is a setting in the nvda menu that will set it back to factory defaults.

I even tried reinstalling it. I also tried the com fixing tool, restarted and tried again. Nothing.

Hi



I have not had to do this for a while as when you have troubles with the browser and this sounds like the same I had a few years back but resetting the browser fixed the problem in those cases. This was both in fire fox and recently in google browser it would speak stuff only if I tabbed but no browse mode etc and in the case of fire fox you could not interact with the browser apart from the menus.



the following page if you do go down this track can be fund at https://malwaretips.com/blogs/reset-firefox-settings/

try some of the other steps from other people and also try another copy of nvda if you have it on a portable to see if the same problem happens and if it does I am guessing the browser is the problem but if it works well with the portable on fire fox then have to look closer at nvda.



As suggested also use the comm tool in nvda and see if that fixes the problem. it is all ways after doing that shut down the pc completely not sleep mode then start up the pc.



if it was saying that in all the browsers and also down on the running application area there might be another way but it sounds like it is not this other problem.

Whenever I open Firefox I hear NVDA say Unknown.

At this point I’m unable to tab or do anything in the browser other than get into menus.

This only happens in Firefox. Chrome and Edge work fine.

I’m running NVDA 2020.4 and Windows 10 21H1 (64-bit) build 19043.899

An NVDA error log is below, but not sure what to make of it as I’m not a developer.
