?The latest version of firefox is 3.6.12. There's a 4.0 in beta form, but haven't tried it since I don't know if the add-on I have on firefox will work on it yet. In my opinion, is a lot better than IE8 will ever be. IE9 is a whole nother matter, but since you said you have XP, I won't go into details. Firefox 3.6.12 works beautifully with jaws. I use it to navigate facebook and a whole of "fancy" sites like you mentioned. No problems at all. Firefox used to crash around once a couple of weeks on XP, but since I upgraded to win 7, I had no problems. I don't like add-ons. But I have one that any blind person shouldn't be without. It is called websome. It solves capchas without sighted assistance. You just press a keystroke and it will do the rest. When it is done, it will say, "capcha contents has been added to the clipboard". You just paste whatever websome gave you on the editbox and 99.9 percent of the time the capcha is correct. I really like firefox, but since I upgraded to IE9 I have been forgetting about it. IE9 is 10 times better than IE8 and since my university's website doesn't open on firefox, I am using IE a lot more. But you will have no problems with firefox.

I'd like to get on board with Firefox at last, but the last time I attempted this with JFW was years ago, and it simply didn't work very satisfactorily. Now I have Jaws 11 and windows XP, and I'd like to ask you folks what the latest version of Firefox I can use might be that will work pleasantly with my Jaws version. I'd also like to know: If the programme generally works smoothly and has scripts designed comparably to the Explorer ones, so that it works efficiently with Jaws Whether the programme crashes frequently, like Explorer seems to do on "fancy" pages If there are any add-ons or plug-ins that you people use and find worthy that I might also try. I know of Noscript and I think I'll definitely be getting that one. ANy thoughts? Recommendations? Thanks.
