accessibility mode won't stay on
I am thinking about moving my site back to wordpress.com from a self-hosted installation. All my posts are still here from when I was here a few years ago, so now all I have to do is import those posts that I don’t have here, then I am going to re-organize the site into a page-based structure. I started that process tonight by renaming my Site Moved page to Coming Soon and changing the message displayed when you go to bobdavcav.wordpress.com. My next plan was to activate a number of wigets, the same ones that are active on my self-hosted site. Apparently, the recent comments wiget got activated somehow, and I had a stray wiget that wasn’t active. I managed to get these deleted, but the problem is that I need the accessibility mode to deal with the wigets. The issue is that it won’t stay on. I go to edit another wiget after editing one already, and find that I have to re-enable accessibility mode. How do I get accessibility mode to stay on?
The blog I need help with is bobdavcav.wordpress.com.
Anyone? How can I keep accessibility mode on when I leave the wigets page?

I only use IE on a regular basis, I could also try on Safari on my phone.
Please give the other browsers a try and let me know how that goes. Thank you!
I’ll have to check with IE again today. I was just using Safari on my phone and it looks like I can add wigets with no problem, but VoiceOver keeps losing focus and jumping all over the page, making that not a very good option either. I’ll check again with IE and post back in a few minutes.
Ok just checked and still not working with IE.
Which version of IE are you referring to?
Check here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/
Did you disable compatibility mode?
As far as I know, compatibility mode is not on on my browser, using IE10.
Could you please try to reset your Internet Explorer? note that this process will reset all your IE10 settings.
1: Close all Internet Explorer and Explorer windows that are currently open.
2: Start Internet Explorer.
Note If you are running Windows 8, start Internet Explorer for the desktop. Changing your settings will affect both Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer for the desktop.
3:On the Tools menu, tap or click Internet options. If you don’t see the Tools menu, press Alt.
4: In the Internet Options window, tap or click the Advanced tab. Tap or click Reset. If you’re using Windows Internet Explorer 6, click Restore Default.
5: In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, tap or click Reset.
6: Select the Delete personal settings check box if you also want to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, Tracking Protection, and ActiveX Filtering data.
7: When Internet Explorer finishes applying default settings, tap or click Close, and then tap or click OK.
8: Exit and then start Internet Explorer.
That seems to have solved it, now all I have to do is set up my home page and default search provider again. One thing I still need help with though since the reset is now every time I log into a website, it asks if I want it to remember the password. Not only do I not want it to do that, I don’t want it asking me again. How do I disable this? I remember in previous versions of IE, there was a check box that said don’t show this message again, but I don’t see that with IE10.
I’m glad it’s solved now.
Regarding the IE10 issue: you might be able to find some settings about this at Tools -> Internet Options > Content in your browser preferences.
Or you can disable password caching at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/229940
Thanks, I think that worked.
