I'm not sure on what you're asking.
Once you open Firefox (and you go to Tools > Options), you'll have a lot of options to play with, which you can access tabbing around the screen.
Now, if you want to mess with another section, you'll have to activate NVDA focus mode so that you can hit up/down arrows and move through the list.

Simply open your Firefox, go to Tools > Options, tab a few times and voila, there you are!
When you reach the "Save files in" (or something like that), tab one more time and choose your preferred folder!
Also just FYI, you can, in this very same way, tell to your browser for asking you every time you download something, this way you'll be asked where you want to save a specific file if you so want.

Re: small and light beeping locater

Great i found the thread! Here's what we have 
My husband and I recently got this beeping locator key finder from Amazon. 
https://amzn.to/2GxluAK

So when we got has eight different pieces so you can attach it to 8 different things, and it has a remote with eight buttons. If that is too many, they also come in packs of 4 and 6.

Each receiver is pretty light and not heavy at all. 2 inches by 1.26 inches and has a hole for key chain.

Each button makes one of the 4, 6, or 8 transmitters beep. If you press and hold the buttons, they will keep beeping until you let go. 

Just make sure to put the remote in a very safe area, because you can't make it beep!

Music To Your Ears? Court Rules Bose Can Gather Your Music Listening Habits

According to a recent decision from a federal district court in
Illinois, Bose Corp. may monitor and collect information about the music
and audio files consumers choose to play through its wireless products
and transmit that information to third parties without the consumers’
knowledge. Such action does not violate the federal Wiretap Act or the
Illinois Eavesdropping Statute. As such, the Court granted Bose’s motion
to dismiss the plaintiff’s class action claims.

Bose manufactures and sells high-end wireless headphones and speakers.
Consumers use the wireless headphones or speakers with their smartphones
to listen to music streamed to their phone from music-streaming
services. Users of certain models of Bose wireless headphones and
speakers can access additional features of those products by downloading
the Bose Connect App. Once downloaded, the App enables users to connect
their smartphones to their Bose Wireless Products via a Bluetooth
connection so that the user can access and control the products’
settings and features through the App. The App also displays the track
title, artist, and album playing.

According to the Plaintiff, Bose designed the App to “(i) collect and
record titles of the music and audio files consumers choose to play
through their Bose wireless products and (ii) transmit such data along
with other personal identifiers to a third-party data miner without
consumers’ knowledge or consent.” Plaintiff alleged that Bose was not a
party to the communication of the music information, but rather
“intercepted” the contents of the communication between the user and the
streaming services. Plaintiff further alleged that Bose did not have
consent from either party to intercept the data.

For a customer using the App, Bose could access the data referenced
above, link the music information to the particular Bose product’s
serial number, identify the name and email address for the particular
user, and in the process build detailed profile about the customer and
his or her music listening habits.

The statutes at issue in the case prohibit intentionally intercepting or
disclosing an electronic communication unless the interception is by a
party to the communication or where one of the parties has given prior
consent. The Court ruled that the complaint failed to sufficiently
allege that Bose is not a party to the communication. The Court
supported its analysis by noting that the complaint itself states that
the Bose App is a participant in the communication of the information
when it sends a user’s request for a song to the streaming service and
in turn displays the provider’s song information on the App. Indeed, the
court noted, that the display of such information is one of the primary
functions of the App. Thus, the court concluded, Bose “is a part of the
listener to streaming service communication.” Although the court notes
that Plaintiff’s real issue may be the fact that Bose collects and
discloses information it receives to third parties, the conduct falls
outside both the federal Wiretap Act and the Illinois law as well. As
such, the court dismissed these claims.

With the ever increasing reliance on wireless technology and businesses
combing for as much data as possible to target consumers, companies
collecting personal data need to be aware of how that data is collected
and what steps are being taken to protect it. While Bose escaped
liability for the Wiretap Act and the Illinois Eavesdropping Law, the
future likely involves more consumers monitoring how their data is
gathered, as well as a corresponding increase in regulation over the
collection and protection of personal data, such as the California
Consumer Privacy Act set to take effect in 2020, and other state
consumer privacy initiatives popping up across the country.

Re: Fw: [acb-chat] I am getting tired of being spied on at every turn...

 

Like someone once said. If you have access to some technology at all, no way you could keeping your steps away from being monitored.
I got so used to all that stuff that I don't even care anymore, but then it's still bad that we've managed to reach to that point.

Oh well, what can we do but live with it?
Of course we can just get off the internet and all technology in general and go and live in a cave, away from everyone and everything, but I for one don't feel like doing it. Then if they want my info and I can't fight against it, so be it.

Now, it's interesting to see everyone's points on such matters, that's why I share things like that whenever it's possible :)

Groupattempts to control the People.  The more Control, the more
surveillance.


Don't know if you are old enough to recall when Microsoft was in Big Big
trouble, and the Government was about ready to throw the book at
Microsoft.  Then two or three months later, Microsoft and the Government
were great friends.  I have always figured there was a Deal made at that
time for Microsoft to give the Watchers in the Government a Door into
Microsoft Windows for the Government to collect data.


Probably from the time the Internet started becoming popular, someone
some where has been very interested in obtaining data from Computer users.


Whether it was a desire to do Industrial Espionage, or some other group
just wanting data in order to make more Sales of their product, Big
Brother and lots of Little Brothers have been searching and collecting
data from computer systems attached to the Internet.



The Sinister side of all of this Data Collection is what will be done
with that Data? It could be used to send you Ads that will offer you
items you have shown an interest.  But, then that same info could be
used against you, to prove that you are a potential threat to the
Government, because you've made unfavorable comments about the
government.  Someone has decided you are a Cancer that should be removed
for the Health of the Government.


Just the other day, I read where Amazon is using Alexa to collect
information from Customers who use Alexa.


Not a surprise.  I figure every time I log on Line, my steps are tracked
by someone.  Every Email I send, is collected and stored away some where.


If you have a Smart Phone that gives you the ability to ask it how to
get from where you are to where you wish to go, as you move, that GPS
unit is working hard to keep you on the right roads to get to your
destination.  But, during that trip, you were being tracked, and that is
now in a record some where, just in case someone needs to know your
movements.


I am not sure anyone can fight it.  I for one hope that what ever Data
that is collected on me, is then not used against me later.


 I don't mind Ads being sent my way, but I really don't want to wake up
some morning and the Brown Shirts are busting down my door to drag me
off to a rough interrogation, because my Smart Phone, or my Kendal
Reader, or my Apple Watch, or my TV, or my Refrigerator recorded me
saying I thought the State Governor was an Idiot!


It could be Harmful to my Health.

data from computer systems attached to the Internet.



The Sinister side of all of this Data Collection is what will be done
with that Data? It could be used to send you Ads that will offer you
items you have shown an interest.  But, then that same info could be
used against you, to prove that you are a potential threat to the
Government, because you've made unfavorable comments about the
government.  Someone has decided you are a Cancer that should be removed
for the Health of the Government.


Just the other day, I read where Amazon is using Alexa to collect
information from Customers who use Alexa.


Not a surprise.  I figure every time I log on Line, my steps are tracked
by someone.  Every Email I send, is collected and stored away some where.


If you have a Smart Phone that gives you the ability to ask it how to
get from where you are to where you wish to go, as you move, that GPS
unit is working hard to keep you on the right roads to get to your
destination.  But, during that trip, you were being tracked, and that is
now in a record some where, just in case someone needs to know your
movements.


I am not sure anyone can fight it.  I for one hope that what ever Data
that is collected on me, is then not used against me later.


 I don't mind Ads being sent my way, but I really don't want to wake up
some morning and the Brown Shirts are busting down my door to drag me
off to a rough interrogation, because my Smart Phone, or my Kendal
Reader, or my Apple Watch, or my TV, or my Refrigerator recorded me
saying I thought the State Governor was an Idiot!


It could be Harmful to my Health.


Cheers,


Grumpy Dave
