I had this experience on Yahoo using Firefox, so the posts in this thread seem 
to indicate that the problem is Yahoo, not IE8. Jouie's solution is the one I 
came across by chance. I don't believe it kicked in right away. Could it be I 
had to reboot to make the change permanent? I don't know. But after that, I 
found that the Yahoo page format has somewhat changed. However, with 
applications mode turned off, Yahoo is manageable again.

But if you encounter this accidentally, just hit tab tab tab tab tab til you 
hear app mode off.

I ran into this the other day and ended up calling Freedom Scientific Tech 
Support about it. They indicated it is related to new features in I.E. 8 being 
used by selected sites (Yahoo in particular). They indicated JAWS 11 will have 
support for this mode. In the meantime, not much you can do but avoid the 
fields that place you in Application Mode.

Subject: Application Mode?

I started IE8 with JAWS10 and was immediately confounded by something called 
Application Mode. I have never encountered this before and I don't know if it 
is JAWS or IE8 related. I do know that I could not use the web page after JAWS 
said Application Mode. Any thoughts about what this is and why its appeared on 
my computer all of a sudden?
