Re: importing my favorites from internet explorer to firefox

Gene
 

Open the part of the library in firefox that deals with bookmarks.  The command is control shift b.
Open the menus with alt.
Right arrow to import and backup and down arrow through the items.  You will find an item that says import book marks from another browser.  press enter and do what is appropriate.  When finished, close the window and return to the main browser window with alt f4.

Hi, everyone,

 

I forgot how to import favorites from internet explorer to firefox. I tried in the file menu and tools but couldn't find anything for importing favorites. How do I do this?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hay I just want to tell you all I am using fire fox 58 full version and it is a lot better than fire fox 57. Web pages load much faster and all web sites I went to work very well. Not all add ons are supported yet butt I think you all should give it a try because it is very fast.

No because you have to install an add on called notification sounds.  The sounds don’t work butt if you install the add ons that have to do with sounds you will be good to go.  They are all compatible with fire fox 58 and above.  Good luck.

Were you able to test the sounds specially when downloading files? Last

week of my installation nvda could not report the progress bar sound.

People should make a point of notifying the accessibility group that until the feature that stops page refreshes is added to firefox again, it won't be acceptable as a browser.  This feature was removed in version 57.  It was found in the general section of advanced settings in options.  It said, roughly, accessibility, notify me when web pages want to redirect or refresh.  Giving the blind user control of whether pages refresh is essential.

Nope, I downloaded it directly from the mozilla site and I'm shure that
is the release version, however I checked that in the about menu. Also
I'm using next from about NVDA 0.6 (well, at that time dev branch)
except in my work where I use stable.
So, as I've said, it works better than 57, is obviously faster, but on
complex sites ESR works better and with Facebook standard simply doens't
work (continuous updates of FB turns FF 58 with NVDA unusable) probably
I need to test FF on other sites for example Google Drives which is a

Hi, Lino and others

Oh, sort of delayed here. Now I am fully up with the installed stable version of Firefox. Smile!
Nothing against with the new performance where in fact so impressed in terms of loading sites is fast with compare to the earlier version of Firefox. For the meantime, I will play around further to check some bug but, hopefully in the next release of nvda master snapshots will definitely fix this specially in reporting the name of the file you've been downloading. or should I say sort of adjustment of the code from the devs team. or vice versa.

I actually have been through the beta cycle with FF 58. If you wanna take a walk on the wild side I recommend installing either NVDA master branch snapshot or the next branch. You’ll like what you get with FF 58. A vast improvement.

A note to all xp users here.

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

I notice that today the latest update to Microsoft Secuity essentials will no longer run on the old AMD Athlon etc, processors. The ones without SSE2 instruction set.
I found the update worked fine on intel chipped machines but just sulks on the amd ones, complaining the service is not running.

I know there are a few people like myself on here who use these old clunkers as file servers on a network etc.
So the question needs to be, and I suspect nobody really knows. is there a basic anti virus product of the free kind that will still work I wonder. I don't really feel like downloading every single one to test it!
Superantispyware works but is as we all know a little flaky on nvda access at times.
Besides it does not say its an anti virus, and in any case its hard enough to find one that will work on a screenreader in the first place.

Byee.

Re: getting started with mail for windows10

David Griffith
 

I don’t  know about default accounts but normally when I press escape I return to the message list  directly – but sometimes as you say  you need to shift tab if the focus shifts to the navigation area.

This happens with Jaws as well as NVDA so I think it is a Mail focus issue.

The way to jump to any folder is control Y but I don’t think this will be any quicker..

I've just gotten started with using mail for windows10, after using

thunderbird for many years. I'm using nvda 2017.4, windows10 64bit and

have a few questions if I may.

 

1. Is there a way to choose a default account(I have two accounts, and

the one I use the least comes up first when I open mail and I have to

switch manualy to the second)

 

2. Is there a way after reading a message to get back to the message

Thanks for any help with this.

 

Cheers,
