Hi there. I'm a blind web developer and I was wondering if there is some way to make the Firefox developer console more screen reader friendly. As it stands, I have no way of viewing JavaScript runtime errors or much of anything besides the element hierarchy when inspecting an element, and even this only provides very little information. I ask because there seems to be a big focus lately on testing for accessibility, but the tools to do so seem completely inaccessible themselves.

I would welcome any suggestions on how to use/improve the dev tools with a screen reader (I'm using NVDA) or an add-on I can down load that would be more friendly to me. I saw a mention of one called "Firebug", but that appears to be an outdated post.

I am thoroughly fed up with FireFox and would like to have reasonable suggestions for an alternative. The main problem is that FF uses ever increasing resources the longer it runs even when there is no internet connection and I am not asking it to do anything. Between the various firefox invocations and HPPA_Main.exe, there comes to be very little resource for any desired activity. Then sometimes one of the firefox invocations grows endlessly (till I stop it or the system crashes), Then once with the installation of a new version (more and more new versions makes it impractical to keep up) the old profile was deleted (I watched the files disappear one by one) so I am always loosing things.

I am using MS Windows 7 and have 8 GB of ram but firefox will have allocated much more than that by the time it becomes unusable.

Hi Team,

I have one website portal where we need to enter username and password to access the portal. when i access website from different browsers like Google Chrome, IE and Microsoft Edge, its automatically authenticating my windows login credentials. But when i am trying to access the same website in firefox , its not authenticating. i have to enter my username and password and than portal up for me and working.

I have done some basic troubleshooting step but nothing is working for me. steps:

network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-proxies True network.negotiate-auth.allow-proxies True network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris, double click on this and i have entered my website url. closed Firefox and open again still same issues.

I have also added my website under Exceptions list in Security options, still not working

hi. recently I have found that I can't load ebay correctly on Firefox, it loads fine on Edge. Other websites appear OK. I don't know how to describe the appearance - there are no images, only various numbered headings, and highlighted links.( I have taken a screenshot, but don't know how to save it in a format that can be loaded on to this page!). It has only been a problem for a few days. What to do??

Hopefully, you kind folks can help with a battle I've had every day or the last 2 months, and appreciate your diligence in resolving it.

If you look at my last question of June 7th, there's no change in what happens in my effort to remain signed in with any Gmail account (one at a time or multiples at a time. And this still remains the only site I have access problems with. Google Chrome, is what I am forced to use and hate to use, but is my only refuge for Gmail, and it keeps me signed in indefinitely.

Attached, please find the error message I get just before it kicks me out 100% of the time, which can be in 10 seconds or a few minutes.

I'm even thinking, there may be a problem with how my computer is synced to my phone that has gmail access, but that only affects Firefox and not Chrome. But I never tried syncing Firefox with anything, but let's test my far out theory anyways, and I'll try it last.

Hoping we can put this one to bed finally.

Thank you!

I'm sure this has been solved elsewhere, but the search function on this site is miserable, and Google has been no help.

I am able to pull up the Ctrl+F searchbar, I am able to type no problem, etc. It gives the appearance of working properly. When I type a word into the searchbar, it does indicate the number of matches it has found within the little search pane, but it does not actually highlight or show any of the matches. Clicking "highlight all" does nothing, and trying to scroll down/up matches doesn't move the screen at all or show any of the page text changing. In essence, it's telling me that it found matches, but it won't tell me where.

Does anyone know how to fix this? TIA

I've used Firefox forever, however in the last couple weeks, I can no longer use eBay as the webiste looks weird and my account is inaccessible. (See attachment.)

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

After a recent FireFox update, I am now having a problem downloading Outlook.com webmail attachments. The download process appears to initiate, but when asked via popup "What should FireFox do with this file", the "OK" button remains 'grayed out' regardless as to whether the "Open . . " or "Save . . " option is selected. BTW: Using FF v79.0 w/ Win 8.1 and not having same issue using either Chrome or IE and issue does not appear to be file-type specific. Assistance would be MUCH appreciated as FF is my preferred browser.
