NVDA restarts when I go to Github page from Run dialog

Nicolai Svendsen
 

Hello,

 

I just saw something really weird today.

 

Basically, I went to the “Run” dialog, entered www.github.com/nvaccess/nvda and pressed enter. NVDA promptly rebooted. If I omit nvda, it’s fine.

 

Why would that happen? Running NVDA 2019.3. Old log just seems to show that everything terminated.

Nicolai,

          What web browser is set as your default?   It would be worth testing to see if this might somehow be linked to the browser being used, as odd as that might seem.

           The more you can narrow this down to a specific set of circumstances the better.

           I can imagine NVDA shutting down if the only thing being seen in the run dialog were to be NVDA.  Are you absolutely, positively certain that the entire URL was there?

Hello Brian,

 

I have used both Firefox and Google Chrome for this. At first I thought it was getting cut off as well, since NVDA will restart if you only type nvda into the run dialog, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. If I type nvdaa instead of nvdaa, it doesn’t restart, but goes on to open the browser with the corresponding webpage address. If I enter nvda instead, NVDA just restarts and nothing else happens. It only happens with NVDA, and no other applications that can be launched from the run dialog box.

 

So this is kind of bizarre. I’m not really sure why this would occur at all. I’ve never had trouble actually doing this before.

You are running the NVDA exe file again.  NVDA is restarting.  NVDAA isn't running the exe file, though I don't seee why the browser would open, that isn't any sort of web site address.

Incorrect, Gene.  It is the very webpage for NVDA  under Github, and if you activate the link in Nicolai's original message you would go there.

One would typically be able to paste a URL such as this one in the Run dialog box and have it open in one's default web browser, with some exceptions for privacy-oriented ones that don't accept the invocation via that mechanism.

We need to be clear about what you are doing.  Are you talking about the run dialog, Windows key being held and r or the start menu search, press the windows key, then type something.  None of the behavior you are describing matches the run dialog.  Typing NVDA should produce an error message because you haven't typed the path to the folder containing the executable first.  Typing NVDAA should also present an error message.  Using the start menu may produce the results you are describing if you type something and the first result is something you want and you press enter on it. 
 
As I said, you are running the NVDA executable, which I strongly suspect you are running from the start menu search.

But how would it know that NVDAA is a web attress?  There is no prefix.  Maybe in the start menu, it might find it from history, but I don't know if the start menu can do that.

No, as clearly stated, he is typing the whole address. Nvda appears to restart. Have you tired this with edge, or firefox? I believe you said you did this with chrome. Can you try whit with the control l, then typing in that address you gave? Also can you screen record this behavior so we may take a look at it? You can upload it to keybase or something so those of us with sight can look.

In the message I answered, this is stated:
If I type nvdaa instead of nvdaa, it doesn’t restart, but goes on to open the browser with the corresponding webpage address. 
 
If the full address was stated in an earlier message, I don't recall it.  I should also add that my comments about needing to type the full path to run the NVDA executable in the run dialog may be wrong.  I use NVDA as a portable program.  I don't know what happens if you have it installed and use the run dialog.  Whatever the case, the executable is being run when just NVDA is being used.

Hi,

 

Just to summarize, so everyone is on point:

 

As I originally stated, both in the subject line and original post, entering www.github.com/nvaccess/nvda into the run dialog box, certainly using Win+R, causes NVDA to restart as if I had just entered nvdaa instead. It ignores everything else except nvdaa. This is the only application where this happens. Appending a second a after nvdaa causes the default browser to launch, showing the URL as www.github.com/nvaccess/nvdaa. So, the only case where it ignores the entire address is when nvdaa is entered following the / (slash), but anything else appended to nvdaa causes the entire entry to be recognized properly, with the URL obviously being incorrect then.

 

It doesn’t matter which browser is the default one. Just for the sake of humor, I did this using Microsoft edge Beta, Microsoft Edge, Google Crome, Mozilla Firefox and even Internet Explorer as default browsers. Nothing visually happens on screen. You’re just bounced back to the desktop, the dialog closes, and NVDA restarts. It also does not matter whether NVDA is already running or not when doing this. It turns out that NVDA launches regardless, even if you exit the application, right click the start button, click “Run”, then enter in www.github.com/nvaccess/nvda.

 

Also, it doesn’t have to be that particular addressor any address at all. As long as it ends with /nvdaa, it does this. Apparently, even if it is thisissuperweird/nvdaa or stopdoingthis/nvda.

 

Maybe that last one is a clue to somebody. If it isn’t, I’ll probably figure it out tomorrow when I get back to work and have multiple configurations to test and modify that isn’t my own. I reiterate that this only happens with NVDA, and no other application so far. Windows rightly doesn’t recognize thisissuperweird followed by anything else after a  (slash), except if it is nvdaa, no matter what it is I enter before it.

 

I don’t think I can make that any clearer or long-winded.

 

Nicolai

Hi,
In actual fact, I believe this could be a Windows issue, not NVDA. Other programs such as Thunderbird will also launch if a command contains its name as part of the string. Maybe it's some kind of aliasing system which does a search for the strings of programs that use it?
Cheers,
Damien.

Hello Damien,

 

That was sort of what I was thinking as well. That certainly seems to be the most likely reason for this. I wasn’t aware Thunderbird did this too.

 

Thanks for confirming.

If so, this isn't the original subject line and I didn't keep the original message and I didn't recall how things were stated.  That's odd and I have no idea why.  Using things like book marks search features, I find it more convenient to work directly in the browser than to use the run dialog to open web pages.

Hi,

 

Just to summarize, so everyone is on point:

 

As I originally stated, both in the subject line and original post, entering www.github.com/nvaccess/nvda into the run dialog box, certainly using Win+R, causes NVDA to restart as if I had just entered nvdaa instead. It ignores everything else except nvdaa. This is the only application where this happens. Appending a second a after nvdaa causes the default browser to launch, showing the URL as www.github.com/nvaccess/nvdaa. So, the only case where it ignores the entire address is when nvdaa is entered following the / (slash), but anything else appended to nvdaa causes the entire entry to be recognized properly, with the URL obviously being incorrect then.

 

It doesn’t matter which browser is the default one. Just for the sake of humor, I did this using Microsoft edge Beta, Microsoft Edge, Google Crome, Mozilla Firefox and even Internet Explorer as default browsers. Nothing visually happens on screen. You’re just bounced back to the desktop, the dialog closes, and NVDA restarts. It also does not matter whether NVDA is already running or not when doing this. It turns out that NVDA launches regardless, even if you exit the application, right click the start button, click “Run”, then enter in www.github.com/nvaccess/nvda.

 

Also, it doesn’t have to be that particular addressor any address at all. As long as it ends with /nvdaa, it does this. Apparently, even if it is thisissuperweird/nvdaa or stopdoingthis/nvda.

 

Maybe that last one is a clue to somebody. If it isn’t, I’ll probably figure it out tomorrow when I get back to work and have multiple configurations to test and modify that isn’t my own. I reiterate that this only happens with NVDA, and no other application so far. Windows rightly doesn’t recognize thisissuperweird followed by anything else after a  (slash), except if it is nvdaa, no matter what it is I enter before it.

 

I don’t think I can make that any clearer or long-winded.

Hello Brian,

 

I have used both Firefox and Google Chrome for this. At first I thought it was getting cut off as well, since NVDA will restart if you only type nvda into the run dialog, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. If I type nvdaa instead of nvdaa, it doesn’t restart, but goes on to open the browser with the corresponding webpage address. If I enter nvda instead, NVDA just restarts and nothing else happens. It only happens with NVDA, and no other applications that can be launched from the run dialog box.

Hi


If I remember right it might be in this release when you type nvda into the run dialogue it will re start nvda if it is the installer version.


Maybe because when you typed in the web address with nvda in it it restarted nvda thinking you wanted to restart it?

Curiously, if you use:

it works properly...

Without the "https://" NVDA restarts, and my default browser is Chrome...

Hi


I think in the beta this might do it it was a script to do it but may not either.


• Running nvda.exe now defaults to replacing an already running copy of NVDA. The -r|--replace command line parameter is still accepted, but ignored. (#8320)


Usually I just do it through the browser not the run dialogue box for web addresses etc

You are running the NVDA exe file again.  NVDA is restarting.  NVDAA isn't running the exe file, though I don't seee why the browser would open, that isn't any sort of web site address.

Hello Brian,

 

I have used both Firefox and Google Chrome for this. At first I thought it was getting cut off as well, since NVDA will restart if you only type nvda into the run dialog, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. If I type nvdaa instead of nvdaa, it doesn’t restart, but goes on to open the browser with the corresponding webpage address. If I enter nvda instead, NVDA just restarts and nothing else happens. It only happens with NVDA, and no other applications that can be launched from the run dialog box.

 

So this is kind of bizarre. I’m not really sure why this would occur at all. I’ve never had trouble actually doing this before.

Nicolai,

          What web browser is set as your default?   It would be worth testing to see if this might somehow be linked to the browser being used, as odd as that might seem.

           The more you can narrow this down to a specific set of circumstances the better.

           I can imagine NVDA shutting down if the only thing being seen in the run dialog were to be NVDA.  Are you absolutely, positively certain that the entire URL was there?
