Re: trying to uninstall the free youtube to mpp3 converter classic

Gene
 

I'm sorry to be blunt but that is very bad advice, to reformat instead of trying system restore.  I've used System restore for years.  It has worked well, except for one time when I lost files, which I put back with a backup.  They were information files of some sort, music, documents, I don't recall now.  There is always a risk with such programs but it is either small or very small.  I would say very small, but I don't want to mislead people and I don't know the statistics.  But if you ask people who run it, and who run it properly, you may well find from the answers of a good sample, that the risk is very small.  It is widely used and usually works well.  You will see it recommended on computer advisor sites with good reputations. 
 
If you don't know the effects of running restore points, you may have problems, such as if you make changes to settings in Windows or install programs or change settings in programs and then run a restore point, you may lose them.   I'll give an example to make this clear.
 
If you install program A, then you install program B and make changes to other programs and Windows settings, if you run the System Restore point that was made immediately before program A was installed, program B will disappear and the changes you made to other things will usually revert to what they were before.  Back up all files you don't want to lose, documents, music, etc. before running a restore point.
 
But urging people to reformat, when most people don't keep images of their systems and will have to reinstall everything, as if it were a new computer is absurd.  And even for people who do keep images, reformatting and restoring from an image takes longer than running a restore point.
 
And, in this case, if someone doesn't want to run a restore point because they are afraid of doing so, reformatting is a very very bad solution to the problem if you don't have system images.  And if you do, I consider it to be a waste of time.  This program is doing nothing, just sitting there, taking an insignificant amount of disk space.  Why are you advocating reformatting for a problem that doesn't exist?

Wouldn't trust restore points.

A reformat will be much better, unless that is you just installed the thing.

I had an issue with a system, still semi have in fact a restore point is
good usually for 2-3 days but chances are the earliest points depending
on system space will be gone, with the fact that with smaller capacity
ssds they can't hold that many.

This system in fact could do with a full reformat, that would fix all my
issues but there is a board issue, its to old to replace and its blown
supplies and other things.

The data is backed up, it died for a bit, came back, but its still being
used partly.

But it will probably be scrapped, if you have a point thats available,
by all means use it.

Re: waterfox accessibility message

Quantum is in Firefox itself.  It affects no other program.  No one else has reported the drop box problem whether they use Firefox or not.  the Drop Box problem has nothing to do with Firefox.

Waterfox is based on ESR versions of Firefox.  I may have commented on this

There is a new ESR version of Firefox and so Waterfox now would be expected

How bad the problems are await comment by users.

Re: nvda on a usb drive

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Gary
I am struggling to understand your set-up here. You say you have a portable copy on the C: drive and you want a copy on your USB drive. Can you not just copy the C: drive folder containing the portable copy to the USB drive?

When I use a USB portable copy of NVDA on a USB drive, I include a batch file in the root of the USB drive called RunNVDA.bat. To launch the USB copy, I can then press windows+r to open the run dialog then type ?:\RunNVDA and press enter. ? being the drive letter assigned to the USB drive. To restart NVDA just re-run the batch file as above.

To create the batch file, copy and paste the following 5 lines into a Notepad file and save it as RunNVDA.bat . If you need to edit the .bat file once you have created it, select it in file explorer, press the applications key, arrow down to "edit" and press enter.

@echo off
rem Place this batch file in the root of your USB drive
set NP=NVDAPort
rem The command below runs the NVDA portable copy in the NP folder defined above
start %~dp0%NP%\nvda_slave.exe launchNVDA -r

Cheers
Chris

Somebody else will have to help with this. Defender has some new protection mode or something. You can turn it off but I thought the latest version of NVDA, or maybe the one before that, could install even if the protection was on. Ah, here's what I was thinking of, from
2018.1: "• In Windows 10 Fall Creaters Update, NVDA no longer fails to update when Controlled Folder Access is enabled from Windows Defender Security Center." Are you using an older version of NVDA? If so you might want to update your portable copy, if you can.

It would be drive:\nvdaport\nvda to run your portable copy. I don't
know what drive letter your USB drive will be assigned though, you'll
have to figure that out yourself. Using narrator should work just
fine, but in case you know the letter the drive gets assigned, you can
run it directly. If it's still on your c: drive, you can also run it
directly from there, c:\nvdaport\nvda

Well, as its windows 10, use narrator to go to the thumb drive and
open it, go to the nvda folder and open it then find nvda.exe and run
it. After that you just need the nvda menu and tools etc as
previously described. Of course if you have UAC on you may get an
invisible window for that as you presumably have seen before. I'm
assuming this is an admin account you are installing into.

If I understand what you're talking about:


1. Login to your new profile.


2. Run NVDA from the USB drive.


3. Go to the NVDA menu, tools, and pick install, or whatever it's
called. I can't tell you because I'm running an installed copy.
Install, tell it to copy your addons or whatever you need.

Re: waterfox accessibility message

 

Well to be honest thats not going to happen, as far as I know we will be using both engines, not sure how exactly but we will be using both apis.

The issue is that, like it or not, even if waterfox sets its own web store which it will, all the classic addons we know and love will not be updated.

Navigational sounds will continue to work at least if I read the documentation right but eventually while the classic stuff will continue to work we won't get the latest updates to them.

Re: waterfox accessibility message

 

It will remain.

Nothing goes away, I had to get noscript back but to be honest nothing else.

Nothing will happen, waterfox is supposed to be using both classic and quantom interfaces.

So in short in theory at least you should be able to run both web and classic extentions easily enough.

Its in the future we aren't trading one codebase for another.

Thats why I keep waterfox round.

This screen appears blank, but you can make the drop down menu work in the normal way, if you choose not to select and escape, you can tab around some buttons on the main screen. I think this is merely a focus issue at launch.
I'm using the portable version of Libra here.
If its not working could they have installed some old version on the system?
It no longer seems to need Java.

Subject: Re: [nvda] nvda on a usb drive

Somebody else will have to help with this. Defender has some new protection mode or something. You can turn it off but I thought the latest version of NVDA, or maybe the one before that, could install even if the protection was on. Ah, here's what I was thinking of, from
2018.1: "• In Windows 10 Fall Creaters Update, NVDA no longer fails to update when Controlled Folder Access is enabled from Windows Defender Security Center." Are you using an older version of NVDA? If so you might want to update your portable copy, if you can.

It would be drive:\nvdaport\nvda to run your portable copy. I don't
know what drive letter your USB drive will be assigned though, you'll
have to figure that out yourself. Using narrator should work just
fine, but in case you know the letter the drive gets assigned, you can
run it directly. If it's still on your c: drive, you can also run it
directly from there, c:\nvdaport\nvda

Well, as its windows 10, use narrator to go to the thumb drive and
open it, go to the nvda folder and open it then find nvda.exe and run
it. After that you just need the nvda menu and tools etc as
previously described. Of course if you have UAC on you may get an
invisible window for that as you presumably have seen before. I'm
assuming this is an admin account you are installing into.

If I understand what you're talking about:


1. Login to your new profile.


2. Run NVDA from the USB drive.


3. Go to the NVDA menu, tools, and pick install, or whatever it's
called. I can't tell you because I'm running an installed copy.
Install, tell it to copy your addons or whatever you need.


4. You're done, enjoy NVDA.

This screen appears blank, but you can make the drop down menu work in the normal way, if you choose not to select and escape, you can tab around some buttons on the main screen. I think this is merely a focus issue at launch.
I'm using the portable version of Libra here.
If its not working could they have installed some old version on the system?
It no longer seems to need Java.

I'm running on windows 7, which is often what these refurbished machines come with, at least in the UK.

Re: trying to uninstall the free youtube to mpp3 converter classic

Gene
 

If you have a restore point from before you installed the program, that is the next thing to try.  System Restore, as do all operations of the type from other restoration programs, involve a small risk.  The risk is small, perhaps very small, but in conformance with my view that there is no point taking even a very small risk for no benefit, if it were me, I might well just leave the inactive program on the computer, for reasons I gave earlier. 
 
From your past correspondence on other topics, it appears you are a perfectionist and want the system to be perfect and not have any innert artifacts that cause no problems.  If you want to take a small or very small risk to achieve this perfectionistic goal, that's your decision.  But rather than spending time running installers that can't uninstall the problem, I think system restore is the next thing to try.

Re: Lots Of NVDA Freezes

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Jim,

Could you perhaps send me a copy of your NVDA log after it freezes (I assume it comes back afterwards?  Otherwise there should be a crash log which would be just as useful) - see https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps for info on that.

Also, you can say Jaws - it's not Voldemort :)  It is useful to know when something which should the same in both (speed of navigating a document, for instance) is sluggish or not working.  Also, if it is something like navigating a specific Word document, if the document itself isn't confidential if you could send me a copy of the document, that can be really useful for troubleshooting too.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi,
So far, I now can predict that if I type fast enough in the Windows search box, NVDA will freeze. The same thing happens on long web pages or ones with lots of scripting. Finally, when it freezes, I can never find the log file.

Finally, and I do not know if this is related, NVDA is very sluggish in Word docs with lots of tables. In General, in Word, it has always been more sluggish than my other screen reader.

If I disable all add-ons, I get less freezing.

Your event viewer is under Administrative Tools' in Control Panel. I'd be looking at both systems & applications events.

Re: nvda on a usb drive

John Isige
 

Somebody else will have to help with this. Defender has some new
protection mode or something. You can turn it off but I thought the
latest version of NVDA, or maybe the one before that, could install even
if the protection was on. Ah, here's what I was thinking of, from
2018.1: "• In Windows 10 Fall Creaters Update, NVDA no longer fails to
update when Controlled Folder Access is enabled from Windows Defender
Security Center." Are you using an older version of NVDA? If so you
might want to update your portable copy, if you can.

Hi John,

Thanks for your help.
I am having an issue installing nvda on my new profile. I switch to the new profile and go to my portable folder and goto nvda. When it comes up I go to tools and go to install. It starts fine but, I get a windows defender notice that it blocked changes. I then get an error message that nvda failed. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thanks,

It would be drive:\nvdaport\nvda to run your portable copy. I don't know what drive letter your USB drive will be assigned though, you'll have to figure that out yourself. Using narrator should work just fine, but in case you know the letter the drive gets assigned, you can run it directly. If it's still on your c: drive, you can also run it directly from there, c:\nvdaport\nvda

Well, as its windows 10, use narrator to go to the thumb drive and
open it, go to the nvda folder and open it then find nvda.exe and run
it. After that you just need the nvda menu and tools etc as
previously described. Of course if you have UAC on you may get an
invisible window for that as you presumably have seen before. I'm
assuming this is an admin account you are installing into.

Hi John,

What I need to know is what is the command line to launch nvda from my
usb drive? Thanks for your help.

If I understand what you're talking about:


1. Login to your new profile.


2. Run NVDA from the USB drive.


3. Go to the NVDA menu, tools, and pick install, or whatever it's
called. I can't tell you because I'm running an installed copy.
Install, tell it to copy your addons or whatever you need.


4. You're done, enjoy NVDA.

Re: waterfox accessibility message

Gene
 

Waterfox is based on ESR versions of Firefox.  I may have commented on this a number of days ago. 
There is a new ESR version of Firefox and so Waterfox now would be expected to have some or perhaps all of the problems of Firefox. 
 
How bad the problems are await comment by users.

Re: waterfox accessibility message

 

Nothing, I got this to, after I reset my options,  then set them how I wanted, I reinstalled all addons then did a sync from mozilla site, I had to download noscript and some stuff like audio capchas just don't work as well as a few other things without running in safe mode but yeah basically everything works.

Waterfox is starting to use the new quantom engine while maintaining the older codebase, its not a problem, at least I havn't found it much of one.
