This lag was a windows UIA bug I think you will find fixed in the recent Microsoft updates. it also affected word in long docs and the file dialogues as I recall.

Subject: Re: [nvda] lag when writing messages in thunderbird

This option is no longer present in thunderbird, so that won't help. And, just for reference, I'm using thunderbird, and NVDA 2017.3, and I'm not seeing the slowdown problem when typing text in messages. I did experience a small bit of this when I first upgraded to 2017.3, but it seems to have gone away, though I didn't do anything to help solve it. Well, come to think of it, I did install some windows updates today, perhaps that was the fix.

Hi, I don't know if this will fix it or not, but I remember Jamey posted something because tb was crashing but this was some years ago this is his work and not mine. text below.

General sluggishness with Thunderbird. I have a feeling, though,
that this is a Thunderbird issue and nothing to do with NVDA.
Try disabling Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Enable Global Search and
Indexer. Note that this isn't accessibility or screen reader specific,
but I personally found that global search didn't help me and was a
performance killer.

I have noticed this as well. Any solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated. I don't know what is causing it. I'm using the latest NVDA, Thunderbird, and windows 8.1 if that helps. I am glad it's not just me noticing this. I thought my computer was going crazy or something. LOL

When composing new emails and writing messages in mozilla thunderbird I get significant lag when trying to edit and write messages. Is there a way to change the cursor in thunderbird to a more responsive one?
