  Since you have a new installation of Firefox, did you make sure that the 
option to load images was checked in Firefox?  This option was not checked by 
default when I first started to use the browser.

    Hi, everyone. 

    I've run into a strange problem using Firefox 3.5.2 with the Webvisum 
add-on.  While it has worked for me in the past with another computer, I had to 
load Firefox and Webvisum onto a new PC following a hard drive failure. 

    Just today, I attempted to join the BlindUsersVerizonPhones list after 
installing the latest edition of Firefox and after adding on Webvisum.  I 
logged into Webvisum first, using the password and invitation code I had used 
before.  But on the JOIN page in Yahoogroups, Webvisum did not recognize or 
solve the CAPTCHA there.  Even after I typed CTRL+ALT+6 several times, I got no 
CAPTCHA response even though I knew Firefox and Webvisum were working in 

    Is there something different about Yahoogroups CAPTCHAs?  Or do I hae to be 
focused directly on the image before Webvisum knows to send this image away for 
processing?  I'm using JFW 10.0.154 with Windows XP Pro, SP3. 

    Any tips about this will be highly appreciated.
