Re: possible fix for the problem with nvda and thunderbird

Kevin Cussick

Hi, I have posted this before sorry for anyone who already has seen this but it might just help. using speedy fox might help as well. I have around 10 machines that I maintain and just do not see this on any of them. and they all tb on them. anyway some instructions below this is not my own work so I can't take any credit if it does help. good luck.

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.

Today my thunder bird was worse than ever.  Every time I read a message
and I went to the next message my nvda would stop talking.  I had to
restart nvda and then thunder bird said it's not responding.  I
maxumised thunder bird and that seems to have solved the problem for
now.  When I had the problem it was on normal window.
