Re: Thunderbird help needed

Elaine Young <REYoung1436@...>


I think the problem occurred when I upgraded to Thunderbird 78.4.0. For an example:

When I replied to this message, I wanted to see if the message was going only to you or going to the list. In the older version of Thunderbird which I had up until today, I could just shift, tab back to the "to" field and Jaws would read to me who was going to receive this message.

But now, I can't do that. I can get to the "to" field, but what Jaws reads is 2 with one address, use left arrow to focus on it". But the left arrow doesn't get me there. If I continue shift, tabbing it says"other types of address field" and another shift, tab takes me to the BCC,CC".  So I can never find out to whom the message is going.  "I suspect there is just a new keystroke I have to figure out, but I haven't hit on the right combination yet.

Probably without using Thunderbird yourself, this won't make much sense so I am hoping someone on the list does use Thunderbird and has worked out the right keystroke.

But thanks for your willingness to listen to my dilemma.

What are you having problems with.  I don't use Thunderbird much but I know a reasonable amount about it.  But without knowing what problems you are having, I don't know what to address.  I didn't intend the pun but I'll point out that it is one.

Subject: [TechTalk] Thunderbird help needed

Hi, Are there any Thunderbird users out there? I think what has happened
is I accidentally, or was forced into, upgrading to Thunderbird 78.4.0
and it has some differences I can't figure out. Can anyone help?
