Re: subject keeps repeating when I hit enter on a message in thunderbird

You are issuing an unnecessary command.  Every command you issue silences previous speech and also carries out the command.  All you have to do is issue one command, read to end.  It will silence any current speech and begin reading to end.  You only have to use control to silence speech when you want to silence speech and have no other action taken.
 
It does this because every command silences speech but control by itself never does anything else, as a standard practice in Windows.
 
This is important to know for convenience and efficiency.  If you are reading and want the current line repeated, if you are still on that line, just using read current line will both stop current speech and read the current line.  You don't have to use control first.  That is another example of gaining efficiency and removing an inconvenience.
