[Athen] NVDA operation questions

Can you send me an example of a page that does this? Are the form fields in question labelled with placeholder text, thus perhaps it is disappearing when tabbing but not when moving using quick nav?
That’s the only thing off the top of my head that could cause that.

Subject: [Athen] NVDA operation questions

Hello All:

I've been using NVDA to test some pages and noticed some strange behavior (I'm using NVDA with the latest version of firefox btw - ver 38.0.5). NVDA does not read form labels when tabbing through a form, only when moving through a form (out of forms mode) using the F key. Also, for some links, when I press enter I get the context-menu, not an opening of the link. Anyone have any insight on this?
