Subject: [access-uk] Re: Firefox Update

I do not currently have jaws 9 installed on my system.

First a general note: be careful about updating a program
especially 
if you are running older assistive technology technology
that may not 
be compatible with such. when possible, try to get the
portable 
version of the program you want to update and see how it
works witth 
your assistive technology. You can get the portable version
of Firefox from

http://portableapps.com/apps

a portable version does not interfere with your installed
version of 
the software.

you can try if the following will help you out when using
ff5 with jaws 9:

Try using

alt+d

to go to the address bar to type in the url you want to
visit. This 
keystroke works both in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

to Exit the program, try using either

ctrl+w

to close the browser window you are in or if you want to
shut down 
firefox altogether, try doing so thru the file menu by
choosing the 
"close" or "exit" command.

Finally, if you want to get rid off FF5 and downgrade to
your earlier 
version - Firefox 3.6.x is still being updated while 4.0.x
apparently 
is not - you do not need to perform a systemrestore but can
rather 
just uninstall ff5 thru add/remove programs. You could
probably even 
just install firefox 3.6 over 5.0  but I would usually
recommend a 
clean install. If you roll back to ff3.6, you want to
uncheck 
automatic updates in the advanced section of firefox's
options.
