I just got an announcement saying the Public Beta of Window-Eyes 5.5 is
Released and Ready for Download. The message says that this version
Unfortunately I couldn't afford to keep up with updates for both JAWS and Window-Eyes and I needed JAWS more at that time so I no longer have Window-eyes. I am wondering if anyone has heard an actual projected date or version number for JAWS that will support firefox. I just searched the Freedom Scientific site for references and found absolutely nothing. They better be working hard on it because they have lost this contest to Window-Eyes and that doesn't look good. Just for confirmation of my assumptions I did try firefox with JAWS version 6.0 and it certainly doesn't work.
I also noticed that Freedom Scientific failed to provide any release notes or new features list on the download page for JAWS version 6.2 and that's pretty weird. Why update something if you aren't going to tell anybody why? I've only heard that version 6.2 isn't as stable as version 6.0 so I am not inclined to try it. :-)

This is a definite IE problem. No matter what you do in IE this exists and
continues to be an annoying plague. May gods blast M$ and its stupid
design! Those of you who are Window-eyes and JAWS users, you will soon have
full access to Firefox from www.mozilla.org. I highly recommend that
everyone on this list download a copy and install it. It will make your
lives easier and much safer.

My situation is that, I have add book.org to my trusted zone in IE and I am
still getting a Security Alert dialog box. I was wondering if anybody knows
how to get rid of it.
Enter trusted site domain: https://www.bookshare.org/
The security alert dialog is as follows:
You are about to be redirected to a connection that is not secure.
The information you are sending to the current site might be retransmitted
to a nonsecure site. Do you wish to continue?
I would really appreciate any feedback.
Thanks YES NO
