We're still in bug hunting mode in Firefox, but I'm not as good at
finding really insidious bugs as blind users, because I normally cheat
and use my eyes.  If there are any particularly unhappy problems in
using Firefox with Orca, let me know.

I'm pretty happy with Firefox now on my machine.  I ran the JAWs demo

these differences are mostly due to JAWs running in a "virtual

So, I would like to get the Vinux Firefox team looking into speeding
up access to Firefox.  I don't know where the bottlenecks are now, but

nasty N-squared loops or poorly chosen sleep and buffer delays.  I
suspect some of this is already somewhat understood, so if you have
any advice for where to start, let me know.
