Re: accessible version of Seamonkey?

Hi Vincent,
Thanks for your help. Yes, i can use IE just fine with no problems and Firefox too for that matter. Thunderbird as well. All these problems seem to be Seamonkey specific for either the mail or web portions.

Lisa,

Do you have any luck if you try Internet Explorer, for example? Just
trying to isolate your problem.

Hi Vincent,
Sorry, we also have the latest version of JAWS, but it won't read
anything with that either. Very perplexed by all of this and
disappointed in myself. Thanks for all your help. Can't even remove the
program and put it back on as it reads the same as the install did.
Can't restore the computer to an earlier time before the problems
started. Looks like I'm just stuck.
