Jamal, there is some kinda weird interaction between EdSharp & Firefox--I dunno what browser Laura is using, but, periodically, EdSharp will read "download complete", or "launch open folder" like it's reading a Firefox status window. Closing ff doesn't usually help. Sometimes I gotta unload jaws or close EdSharp. I've particularly noticed in this last version that there are just times when cursoring in the document fails to work & exiting is the only cure for that. So I can't confirm what Laura says as I've never had EdSharp's help come up but I can confirm some weird interaction between EdSharp & other programs.
