Bummer! Let's first try a couple things -- the first will be to see if
Orca is working OK for you. If you run orca with the "--version"
option, do you get the Orca version that you expect? In addition, does
Orca work OK with various GTK+ applications, such as gnome-terminal,
gedit, gcalctool? If so, then Orca is probably OK.
The next will be to get a new version of firefox. In a terminal window,
grab the latest Firefox (as of this morning, EDT) using wget:
Then extract/run it after making sure you've quit/killed any other
version of Firefox that might be running:
bunzip2 -c firefox-3.0a8pre.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
This should get you the latest stuff. It's been a little unstable
lately, but the Mozilla team has been working hard and things are
getting better each day.
Hope this helps,

ok, I feel really damn smart right about now... Not? I was trying to
rebuild Orca to the latest, most recent build, and in the process a doing
so, I also wanted to update firefox so that I quite obviously would have
access to browse the web. O I got Firefox installed all right, but for one,
Orca won't read when I down arrow through a page, leading me to think I
updated Orca wrong, and secondly and more fun... I think I installed the
sweedish, or polish or something version of Firefox as it's all in another
language that I don't know. Dang it, it even makes things like google be
translated into the other language like the I'm feeling lucky button is now
labeled in the other language. Boy what've I done, what've I done. Anyway,
please can someone help me out. My tecdh guy that I normally would call
would help, but right now I can't afford paid support, sorry. Just goes to
show what happens when you don't know Linux worth a lick but try to go way
over your head anyway to doing thingsd more advanced than your comfort zone.
