RE: Brailleback Navigation Keys No Longer Working in Firefox for Android


Dear Marco,
Thank you for the quick response.  My device shows Brailleback version
0.93.0, so I don't believe there's been an update.  I have tried
uninstalling and then reinstalling Firefox, and have done the same for
Brailleback.  My other apps are working just as they were on the previous
device, Samsung Note4, so I'm not sure what's going on.  Any other ideas of
what I could try?

Hi Dan,

has there been a BrailleBack update for some devices recently? I didn't see
anything, and we certainly didn't make any conscious choices that could
warrant BrailleBack from stopping to work.

In any case, we're currently in the process of bringing our Android more up
to speed with current releases, but this is not in Firefox 40 or such, but
will debut later this year. So those changes we're making cannot have caused
the problems you're seeing. If at all, they should even cause less problems
than more. :)

Greetings all,

I recently upgraded to the Samsung Note5 running Android 5.1.1, and Firefox
40.0.3.  I am using a Brailliant 32-cell display with Brailleback.  While
the menu and address bar work as before, I receive a beep whenever I use any
forward braille navigation command.  For example, pan right, advance item,
or advance line.  The previous navigation keys, such as pan left, take me
back to the menu at the top of the page.  Letter navigation, such as H for
heading, and G for graphic, work as before.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
