@sumandogra: What version of Internet Explorer were you testing with? While we did fix a problem with NVDA switching to browse mode incorrectly when address suggestions appear, even without this fix, suggestions still get read for us. Could you please re-test this with both master and next branches? If you can still reproduce this, a log file at level input/output would be useful.

This fix addresses one issue, but we couldn't reproduce the original report, so leaving open for now pending a response from @@sumandogra.
