JAWS does not read text message in new alert dialog in Firefox 4 and 5.
Frank asked to add this issue as additional information to this defect. 

An alert message is issued using, javascript:alert("Test Message"); This can be done just by typing this line into the address field in the browser. 

In Firefox 3.6, JAWS would read the text in the alert dialog. With Firefox 4 and 5, we have found two issues. First, focus is not placed on the dialog box. Actually, watching the events in AccProbe shows that the focus goes to the OK button but then goes back to the browser window.

If focus is placed on the OK button, we find that JAWS can read the OK button but does not read the text message. I tried both Insert + B and Ctrl +Home, Insert + Down Arrow.
