I would check your control panel Internet settings. You can get to this via IE11 as well under the tools option. IN the advance dialog tab, there is an option for what you are seeking. See if this helps.

Subject: [WebAIM] Restoring Automatic Links

Dear Listers,

I have an internet issue that goes beyond email.
First, I am using NVDA, FireFox as browser, and windows 7.

Whenever I type an internet link such as www.webaim.org it does not automatically hyperlink. I am informed this changed due to either a Windows Seven update or FireFox update.

Beyond pasting the link or using standard Gmail if typing this in an Email, is there a function within con:fig that will restore automatic links when internet addresses are typed?
I am a totally blind computer user, so rely on hot keys.
Thank you in advance.

David Russell
