The popup dialogs that show up in the console are not being read by the JAWS screen reader tool. The tool only announces that it is a Dialog and reads the Buttons in the dialogs. But the information in the dialog is not being read out.
--enable secure admin and access console remotely.
--Login to Console , click the Logout button .
--A popup is displayed with the message " Log Out of Oracle GlassFish Server Administration Console" " with a OK and Cancel Button.
--JAWS screen reader only reads out the 2 buttons and does not read the message .

This issue exists for all popups. Ex: Enabling Secure Admin, disabling secure admin, etc.

It seems to be a well known problem with JAWS and Firefox.

E.g. problem opened for FF were resolved as JAWS problems, with no further reference - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=346722

Other more recent problem for FF has no any new information - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=671201

Note, JAWS 13 reads mentioned popup dialogs on Firefox 6.0.1.

Using JAWS 12.0 and FF 3.6.23, the contents of the popup dialogs were read out.
