Mike & Fanus,

That's exactly what they are, and the first figure is (provided column order has not been rearranged from default) total size and the second free space.

When I'm using NVDA it announces what the number is (e.g., Total size) before the value is announced.

I won't deny that.  But the fact that many don't suggests strongly, as is true in so many instances, that it is something idiosyncratic to the machines in question rather than a global (as in everyone has it) bug.  But the degree to which folks do have it also suggests that whatever the root cause is, it's not exactly rare, either.

Worth mentioning on the developer's GitHub page if you are so affected.

The check box is checked by default, whatever it does. It has always been enabled for my installation. I don't know what may cause differences but this appears to be a widespread enough problem that many people have it. I've seen it discussed on a number of lists.

I said this to Gene privately recently, but since it's come up here, I do not have this problem, many other people I know do not have this problem with the latest versions of Thunderbird and the Quick Folder Key Navigation Add-On.

When I open the Thunderbird Add-Ons manager and hit the triple-dot menu button for Quick Folder Key Navigation and go to its options, I do see something "odd" that I can't explain why it's this way, but it's worth checking. There are two checkboxes in the Options, one clearly labeled, "Enable Mail-folder key navigation," along with a second, unlabeled checkbox that is checked. I have no idea if something will be announced beyond "checkbox" for that second checkbox, but mine's checked and the issue described with constant need to disable/reenable is not occurring, and that's over a long period now.

The description in the add-on manager also goes into further detail than it once did, and I'll put the text here for easier review:
General Description: This extension makes it possible to quickly navigate to a particular folder in the folder pane simply by typing the first few letters of the folder name when the folder pane has focus. Note that single-letter Thunderbird short-cuts (such as "p" and "n" for moving to the previous and next unread message respectively) do not work in the folder pane when key navigation is enabled. Therefore, There is an option to turn key navigation on/off, as well as for adding this option to the context menu when the folder pane has focus.

Re: Issue With Thunderbird latest upgrade and Quick Folder Key Navigation Add On

Some sort of work was done to make it compatible. We don't know what will happen in the future but you have no grounds to have a pessimistic attitude. It may well be that the add-on is kept up-to-date. And if it stops working, as I've said before, why do you need to use the latest version of Thunderbird in the first place? Will someone please give me one example, from personal experience, of anyone being infected by opening an e-mail while using an older or old program like Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express, or an old version of Thunderbird? I'm not talking about opening attachments. I'm talking about opening a message. I don't recall hearing about one in so many years that I don't know when or if I heard about it happening.

Yes, it is "compatible". But this does not necessarily mean that it will work 100%. I don't think the developer of Quick Key Folder Navigation has updated it in a long time, and although you can get it to work by re-enabling it every time you open Thunderbird, there is no guarantee that it won't stop working altogether in the future, as was the case withthe previously mentioned blind-friendly Firefox add-ons.

No. There is a new compatible version. The problem, if you are using it, is that it won't work, even if its running, unless you disable and enable it once you run the program. If it were a compatibility problem, it just wouldn't work.

Its your own bias lol. AMD machines currently easily surpass intel in most metrics except single threaded performance, and moreover AMD use a much smaller 7 nanometer manufacturing process which makes them run colder too.  Also, they are coming out with new processors that dramatically improve performance as well, and likely surpass intel in single threaded workloads too.

Re: Looking for a laptop replacement

Brian,

this may be true,  but these machines usually have paculiar layouts, or missing keys. For example, the rp15, the smaller sibling of this machine, missed an enter key, and plus key on the numb pad.  I still think buying a keyboard is the best choice for most people. The typing experience on a mechanical keyboard is far superior to the layouts on most laptops.
