Comment taken from FireFox Input 

I am blind and rely on a screen reader called JAWS For Windows, and find when I use Firefox there are some areas that JAWS is not able to access, like to check for updates. When I go to Help and then About, using the cursor keys or JAWS's review cursor cannot access the text of the about dialog. This should not be the case. Please consider fixing it. I don't know of any screen reader accessibility settings I can set to possibly resolve compatibility issues. Please let me know if there is...

This behavior seems to work as expected on Windows 10 with Firefox Nightly 57.0a1 and JAWS 18.0.4238

Closing as WFM.
