Stopping NVDA from reading partial URLs in Firefox.

John Isige

Hi all.

Sorry if this is off topic, because it might end up being a Firefox usage question, I don't know.

So if you type something in Firefox, say banjo, you can arrow down and get a list of sites in your bookmarks that have that word in them. That's great, I want that.

What I don't want is this. I want to research networking on Windows. SO I start typing "how to set up a network bridge in Windows 10". What I hear is this. I type h, I hear "", probably because it was the last URL I visited. As I type more, it will either keep saying that URL, or change to another one if it thinks it's found something else that matches. Only when I get past that will it stop speaking, because I've hit a point where it has no more matches.

Can I turn this off somehow? I don't have any of NVDA's keyboard echo stuff turned on because it's super confusing to me when I'm typing to hear random stuff come up. It slows me down and messes up my typing. This is doing the exact same thing. It's incredibly annoying.
