Re: issues with quick nav of thunderbird and NVDA

Dan Beaver


On my system when I first bring up Thunderbird and go into the addon manager it shows this addon as being checked not unchecked.  It still  acts like it would if it were unchecked though.  I still have to uncheck and recheck it to get it working.  Very strange.

Hi Group,

The quick key folder navigation is a Thunderbird add on not an NVDA add on. What I have noticed is that since a recent update of Thunderbird that some  how the use quick key folder navigation item becomes unchecked under Thunderbird settings/add on manager after you close Thunderbird. You have to recheck the check box every time you launch the program to get it to work again.

I notice the folders list does not speak after TB updates.  I go to add-ons and check Quick Folder Key Navigation and make sure it is working and enabled.

I don't know why it says "loading" all the time.

I have TB 68.12.0 (32-bit Windows Version 1909 NVDA 2020.2

I hope TB doesn't mess up when I get Win 2004.

Here are the details from that screen:

Doing some experimenting.  Just installed Thunderbird version 78.1 along with the quick key folder nav addon.  Still having issues with the addon working as it should.
