New Issue With Activating Elements on Firefox?


Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

I think my Firefox just got auto-updated (it is now version 87.0).
Along with that, I recently began experiencing issues on Whatsapp Web
as well as on Google Search with activating different links and
elements. I press Enter, move to it by object navigation and then
NVDA+Enter, route the mouse to it and then simulate a left mouse
click, press F11 to perhaps maximize Firefox and then press Enter, go
into focus mode and then press Enter, but I just can't get them to be
clicked. Are others facing anything similar? If not, I'll keep
troubleshooting to try to remedy this odd but significant bug.

Thanks.

Since not all of us use Whatsapp, can you give an exact set of steps to reproduce using Google or a similar public site?

Before you do, please run the Com Reg Fixing Tool in the NVDA Tools menu; I have seen exotic web page controls misbehave in Firefox if your Com Registrations have gone wonky.

Lastly: what NVDA and Windows version?

Dear Luke,

Please ignore my original email. The issue does not appear anymore. I
am not sure what caused it nor what fixed it, but I appreciate your
message. I will update this thread should I encounter it again.

Thanks.
