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

Hi Dan,

I am currently out of ideas. I cannot reproduce on this end, and I've so
far not seen any other report like yours. I initially thought it might be
some weird interaction between BrailleBack and the Samsung-flavored
TalkBack they've been introducing lately. But since normal touch
exploration and swiping works, I am no longer so convinced this is actually
the case.
