No helping is necessary in thunderbird. I press enter on a
message, it opens, reads the message with no intervention from me,
and I can then delete the message, and it moves on to the next
one. I don't have to remove my finger from the delete button for
most of my messages, and the only time I do move my finger is when
I want to keep a message, I then press control-w to close the
message, arrow down to go to the next one, and press enter and
start the process again. No repeating, no manual intervnetion,
and no need to stop reading or start reading of any kind, it's all
automatic, and it only reads what it should.

I don't know what you mean by starting to navigate. Just
issue the read to end command. the same when doing a search in
a browser using the screen-reader search. If you issue read
current line immediately when you hear speech after initiating a
search, the extraneous material will stop being read and the
intended material will be heard.
You have to help screen-readers along at times, given the
complex environments in which they work and their complexity and
given that they are working in a visually oriented interface.

No. you'll just have to get used to it. This is part of the
loss of being blind. I get it four times.
You can avoid it somewhat by starting to navigate as soon as it
