Heather. Your TB problem is as peculiar as it is complicating.
First things first, can you access your TB menus, like file, view,
options and so on? This is the first benchmark to test if your
apps are working as they should. If you can access those menus,
for example, can you access the usual items in them? Cheers!

I am not sure, It is the portable version,
not the installed version. Where do I go to check? The only
thing I installed was the portable x program for thunderbird
and it only asked me for the location for the portable copy to
be put in. My program was ThunderbirdPortable_78.4.0_English .
exe. Thanks Heather

It sounds like somehow, some sort of tool bar got installed
for Thunderbird. Have you checked your programs and features
area to see if there is anything unfamiliar there?

NO it did not work. Yes I am using nvda. It just says
Missoula thunderbirdtool bar tab control home tab selected
1 of 1.When Itab one I get treevie, the next tab says about:grouping.
It goes back around with these options. I tried to
control tab and nothing happens. It tells me I received
a message and which account but, I cant read the messages
or get to them. I am currently typing in the windows10
mail app listening to thunderbird receiving messages that
I cant red in that program. I redid thunderbird and I am
having the same issues. Thank you, Heather

far as not seeing anything about Thunderbird being
up-to-date, I’m not sure but I think you are using
NVDA. For some reason, when you are in the about
dialog, browse mode is off. Turn it on, NVDA key
space, and then you can move around as though you
are on a web page. You will see the line of text if
it is there.

Re: [TechTalk] thunder bird not accessible
control tabbing and see if you move to a
different part of the program where the f6 key
may suggest settings you can change. I
haven’t seen what you are describing.

Re: [TechTalk] thunder bird not
I reinstalled thunderbird but, it no longer
lets me use f6 keys to get to the treeview and
I can tab in to the different accounts. When I
used thunderbird in the past, the start page
came up and I used f6 key that would take me
to a treeview box and I could tab between
accounts. So I could close the treeviews with
the arrow keys. I do not see any of this now.
I cant even find the update thunderbird. I
only see it in the about thunderbird page and
I hit update and nothing happens! I do not
even get a message that you using the latest
update of thunderbird. Thank you Heather

you are saying that you have the same
problem after reinstalling the program
as with the old one, then it isn’t very
likely isn’t the program. If the
installation file were corrupted, the
program would very likely not install.
But we need to know just what is going
on. Are you saying that you have the
same problem now as before?
believe I have an older installation
file I can send you. You can try that
older version. If it works properly
don’t upgrade if, for some unknown
reason, the current version doesn’t work
properly but the older one does.

Re: [TechTalk] thunder bird not
I will think about it. I hate it that a
program I used to use seems to be acting
strange, could the installation program
be bad too? It was a breand new install
of thunderbird and it acts like the old
