It may be useful to note that there is no more options dialog in the tools menu.  It is replaced by a dialog called settings.

Its very odd that if I understand what you wrote earlier, the portable version didn’t work properly either.

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
relief).

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.
