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

Good Afternoon:  If you go to settings in tools and tab through you will find a button to have Firefox automatically update or you can tab once more and you have a second option to set firefox let you manually check for updates.  When you said you could not update I went into Firefox and was able to go right there.  It has been moved out of options and placed in settings.  In going through settings, it's just like options and settings was put in it's place.  I have never let firefox update automatically for me.

So, how long before we all get v.89 unless we take steps not to update. Don't want to be caught unawares before this happens.

I've tried both w/the NVDA beta as well as the stable version, folks.

It's broken on my system, & that includes w/Narrator & Jaws also.
