Hi Group,

I got this referenced from another list.

There is an  add on that allows folder navigation by typing the first 
letter and it is called 'quick key folder navigation.'  The description 
says you have to type the first 3 letters, but if you only have one 
folder that begins with the letter key you press, then you will move 
right to the folder with just the first key press. I have installed this 
and it works great.  This restores one of the favorite features for 
screen reader users that existed in the venerable and now largely 
defunct Outlook Express.

Using Thunderbird, it is easy to install this add on.  Just click 
tools/add on manager/search for add on.  Type in quick folder key 
navigation, press enter, then tab to the list of results, highlight the 
add on, right click and choose install.  Then follow the prompts.  There 
is no need to browse the Mozilla website for the add on.
