Re: fixing firefox
By a complete uninstall, do you mean manually removing a folder left behind after you uninstall the program using programs and features? Does it also entail any deletions from the registry to get rid of settings?
Here is a step-by-step description of how to find the feature. Try this first.
New major steps start on new lines:
When Firefox is opened, press alt then release it and type t then o.
Wait two or three seconds.
Shift tab three times.
Press end, then up arrow once.
Now Shift tab twenty-one times.
Press the space bar.
You may immediately be able to tab or shift tab and hear information, which means the problem has been solved. I'm not sure if you have to restart Firefox to have this setting take place; usually, you don't..

In Quantum versions of Firefox, it's in the Privacy and Security tab of settings, and it's a bit buried. It'll take much tabbing to get there. The entry that you want to make sure is unchecked is
Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser
The catch 22 is that, if it's checked, we can't read anything anyway, and either sighted help will be needed to uncheck it, or a complete uninstall, then reinstall of Firefox. Using, and backing up, a working portable installation is not a bad idea.
