I went ahead and compiled the latest RC2 for firefox 1.5 for linux and AIX,
using pretty much the same flags (using the xlC compiler for AIX with a few
specific XLC options) in linux things seemed to work fine and I can "poke"
all widgets and use gnopernicus to navigate web pages. The AIX version DID
have the accessibility flags (as far as I could tell) and yet all I am able
to poke is the top menu bar and the Panel. This is even after exporting the
GTK_MODULES=atk-bridge:gail. When that is not exported, firefox-bin does
not even show up in at-poke.
There is no errors about accessibility in logs. I have the gnome 2.10
packages installed. Am I missing anything?
I also wanted to thank those who have been making firefox more accessible.
Very good to have this excellent browser begin to make headway for disabled
users in Linux.
