Hi Kostadin. Thanks for the info about status bars in different
areas of Thunderbird. I just turned it off in the message reading
window. This fixed my verbosity problem.
I have not reported to Mozilla so far.

I also have the status bar of Thunderbird showing in the
program's main window and I don't observe the described
behavior. But I'm reading messages from the main window of
Thunderbird (via the message list and the message pane). Most
screen reader users seam to read messages in a separate window.
And we come to the main thing here - the option to show/hide the
status bar in Thunderbird is independent for the separate
Thunderbird windows like the main window, the optional separate
window for message reading, the message composer window, etc.
So, if you've disabled the status bar from within Thunderbird's
main window, it will not affect its behavior for the message
reading window and it will probably still be visible in it. And
if you're reading messages from within that message reading
window, this may be why you still hear those messages - the
status bar is still shown for the message reading window.
Mind you, this automatic speaking of status bar messages should
not be happening even with the status bar shown It was fixed for
the main window of Thunderbird, but not for the other windows
like the ones for message reading and for composing a message.
This should be reported to and fixed by the Thunderbird
developers. Has anyone done that? If not, I may do it these
days. The only place that I find this automatic speaking of
status bar messages useful is in the a"Advanced Search" window,
where thanks to those messages I know the status of the
performed search, without needing to manually read the status

have the same issue. It's pretty annoying. Especially when it
keeps saying downloading however many messages. I tried turning
status bar thing, and it still does it.
