Evening gentlemen and ladies

I trust that this email finds you well.

1. How does one access notification alerts in fire fox like in IE11 with alt+n?

2. How does one prevent fire fox self-update?

I'm saying this because fire fox has just updated itself from 52 to 60
and the latter is very inaccessible with jaws16 or jaws18 and even
with nvda 2018.2.1.

Your assistance is appreciated in advance.

I never successfully was able to use it, not even on version 52 or earlier. I pretty much gave up on it completely because never has an add-on given me so much trouble or simply refused to do what it is most sought after to do. However, it seems other people still use it and maintain that it works for them.

best forum members,

I have downloaded the nvda 2018.3 rc1 and put it into use.

but I am not entirely positive, there is still something here and there.

Like, I have already experienced a number of times, that I used the

emoticon add-on, often it goes well but suddenly without any apparent

reason it gets stuck.

With alt tab I can then go back to the text where I wanted to place an

emoji.

but it is not going well. Only after I have restarted nvda again can I

place an emoticon again.

are there more people who have the same problem?

with nvda 2018.2 I did not have these problems.

do I have to update the emoticon add-on?

is it available?

with a curious greeting

Re: A security change in Chrome you would be wise to correct

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Here's the thing.

Not all domain owners support www as a subdomain of their site.  Admittedly, most do, but there are several (just in the last year), that I've discovered that don't, and even newer sites that haven't configured their sites properly yet won't support it, just because they don't know they're supposed to.  As a result, dropping anything at all from the displayed url could easily lead to confusion.  None of my banking sites use www in their domains, they use things like cards.xxx.com, or customer.xxx.com, so even if the domain does support the www subdomain, there's no guarantee leaving it out or putting it in is going to lead you to the same place on their site.  Subdomains can point anywhere, including to completely different sites on the web, so hiding anything relating to the domain is just asking for trouble, and anyone who comes up with such a scheme is not doing anybody any favors.

Re: A security change in Chrome you would be wise to correct

 

Over the years, there has been much hand-wringing from security experts over features that eventually become de facto standards.

The risk posed by this feature is, in my opinion, minimal.  Others, of course, will differ.

One side or another is going to have to "suck it up and deal" when the dust settles on this one.  It's still a very open question as to which side, and it's appropriate that people make their feelings known.  I've made mine known.  Feel free to disagree with them, and vigorously.  That won't make me change them in this instance.

Re: A security change in Chrome you would be wise to correct

The article I linked to specifically cites instances where, if the beginning is omitted, the site address will look exactly the same.  Security experts have been complaining about this.  I don't consider this to be meaningless.  the user should be able to see the full address.  and as far as not seeing what you are used to, scammers are becoming increasingly adept at making sites look like the real site.  and what if you haven't been to this site before or very seldom? 
 
This has nothing to do with the user being able to leave off the prefix information when typing an address.  It has to do with the user being able to see the address when on a site.  The two are completely unrelated.
 
Maybe you will take a more detailed article on Bleeping Computer more seriously:

Very few of these fool me, but if I am unsure of one, I copy the link and paste it into notepad and inspect it.
Those fishing links will have a URL totally not related to the name of what they say they are for.
But I think mouse-happy people often click on things without thinking of the message, and how this company would have their eMail.

I would suggest that more people click on links to arrive at a web page than type in the address themselves.

This is how phishing attacks work - you receive a plausible-looking email claiming to be from Amazon, eBay, your bank, an airline, etc. telling you there's a problem with your account (or perhaps making you a special offer), and giving you a link to click on. The site you land on looks almost identical to the real one.

Such sites then typically invite you to log in, maybe buy something, then present an error message, redirect you to the real site, and take your credentials (and possibly credit card details too, if they got you to go that
far) and do whatever they want with them.

So, in my opinion, anything which disguises the real web address from users is a very bad thing. It conceals potentially important information, and it treats people as though they don't understand the web, which encourages people not to understand the web and be vulnerable as a result.
