How to make JAWS 8.0 load the Firefox configuration for Firefox 3.0

In order for JAWS 8.0 to load the Firefox configuration also for Firefox 3.0, so that a Virtual Find can be performed using Ctrl+F, the file C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataFreedom ScientificJAWS8.0SettingsenuConfigNames.ini must be edited. At the end of the file, add the line

firefox3.0=firefox

and save the file.

This change cannot be made in a user specific ConfigNames.ini file because JAWS does not support layering this file with a common and a user specific file.

Note that under Vista, this file is in C:ProgramDataFreedom…, and it must be edited as administrator. On the start menu, select NotePad, press Applications, select “Run as administrator”, load, edit, and save the file.

In either case, JAWS should pick up this change immediately.
