Re: issues with quick nav of thunderbird and NVDA


You can turn off the today pain in view but even with it off any status message will announce the today pain as being active.

The calendar though is accessible if you do need it.

I don't but some may.

One thing that thunderbird 78 has is a calendar that is not a addon as it has been.  Is there a way to disable the calendar?

The quick key folder navigation does work fine with thunderbird 78.
plus they added some long waited feature "minimize to tray' to TB options
And the options setting interface  has become a lot easier to deal with. .

It should be noted that when you get to version 78.x, which isn't available

through the program update yet, but its coming at some point, that the quick

navigation add-on will no longer work, nor will the other add-on that adds
functionality.  I might be able to find out its name.  Its something like
Mozilla enhancements.  I've said before that if people only use Thunderbird

for e-mail, I think updating is a bad idea.  If you use other features, it
might make sense to do so.

Also, the Lightning add-on is no longer used in 78.X.  The calendar function

is built into the program.  I don't know if it can be disabled but those are

changes people who just let the program update should be aware of.  If it
can't be disabled, that might be another reason for not letting the program

update.  These topics need more discussion.

I took a look around and discovered that there had been an extension
installed called Lightning.This was the Calendar/Schedule extension for
Thunderbird, from way, way back.   If you don't use that functionality, then

removing it is a good idea.

I've had consistent behavior out of the Quick Folder Key Navigation
extension for years now.
