Re: MathPlayer broke NVDA and Firefox.

It sounds as though the registration tool isn’t correcting the problem, at least in your case.  Do you have system restore ;points?  If this is a registry problem, running a restore point before you uninstalled math player will likely correct the problem.
 
I’ll add that that is no reason not to install Math Player.  It means that if you install it, you shouldn’t uninstall it.  There is no reason to uninstall it.  Just don’t use it if you don’t want to.  You can disable add-ons and leave them installed if the add-on is doing something you don’t want. 
 
Uninstalling Microsoft Office causes problems with NVDA but people wouldn’t not install it for that reason.

Well, I just created a portable copy and told it to run it when it was
done. That didn't fix anything, so I doubt reinstallation will either.
