Of course temporarily all I did was turn off the status bar in the
That will solve it until Thunderbird fixes it up
Joseph, I ask you this question respectfully.
Will a quicker fix be made available via Mozilla, or the
fine add-on developers who monitor these list daily?
I'm ready to switchback to MS mail due to this annoyance of
NVDA reading everything being displayed on Thunderbird's
mail status bar.
Couldn't the NVDA Mozilla apps enhancement add-on include
some sort of fix to stop this until Mozilla gets around to
removing the tag causing the problem?

Hello NVDA users,
As requested by moderators, please
direct further comments to GitHub issue:
A few minutes ago one of the NVDA
code contributors tweeted that annoying status bar
announcement issue is caused by changes made to
Thunderbird itself. In short, Thunderbird placed a tag
on its status bar that will cause NVDA to announce
messages continuously (technical: ARIA role status was
used for status bar).
Unless it is justified that NVDA
should resolve this issue on its own, this issue is
something Thunderbird developers should resolve.
