Hello Brian, Gene and others,

Just to alert, I did a system restore after downloading FF-60.4
because I could not read emails being composed, and navigating the
computer itself required a couple added steps that didn't always work.

I found the email address to Intopia, and resent request for the name
of the accessibility group they had recommended I contact based in
Texas. A Ricky Onsman replied and the group is called Nobility.org.

I will phone them as the email address provided did not work.

As to WaterFox, either the domain waterfox.com is for sale, or they
somehow want to verify who is at their site. I got a message saying
something wanted to make changes to my computer. I didn't go along. So
at the moment, am on FF-52 and seeking advisement on where to turn for
a better browser that won't screw things up. Thanks.

That is not the correct domain for Waterfox. Where you actually want to go is

https://www.waterfoxproject.org

Well I'm at a loss to know why you seem to have issues with firefox. I can almost guarantee if you use the right address for the waterfox browser you will be very pleasantly surprised.

I haven't used Waterfox so I can't comment on that one.  Aside from what I said before about using the portable version of Firefox, Chrome is a good choice.  And you can have your current version of firefox on your machine if you want to use it for some specific sites and use Chrome or Waterfox for general browsing. 
 
Also, is there a reason you aren't using an e-mail program?  Blind people generally find e-mail programs to be more efficient and you can have an e-mail program work with GMail.
