locked Re: Updated Firefox to version 89, can no longer use w/NVDA


I was gonna do that, Brian, but I was rather waiting for anyone who'd
updated to weigh in on whether or not they were having any difficulty.
Clearly a couple folks did so & said they weren't. So I
uninstalled/reinstalled, & indeed, that fixed it. (huge sigh of

You just never know if an update is going to make changes that make a
product unusable w/a screen reader, though the last time it happened
in Firefox, we were given prior warning. Since none was issued this
time, I felt it might be safe. Clearly somethin got corrupted.

Yes, addons of both NVDA & Firefox are now disabled, & I have
refreshed Firefox. Yes, I can provide a log for interested parties.
Yes, I have tried running comm registration tool. There is text on
the screen, Seeing AI sees it, but NVDA does not recognize it, nor
does narrator.

I'm hosed.
