Re: problem with links in email when using Thunderbird

As it turns out, I can't check this myself. For an unknown reason, I don't see the reply to sender or however it is worded link in my Groups.io messages. However, the problem may be caused by browse mode and the actual location in the message not aligning, as happens on some web pages.

To experiment try the following:
In an opened message, turn Browse modeoff and tab to the link. for convenience, find a very short thread or one in which there is only one message. With browse mode still off, press enter on the link and see what happens. If the problem is that browse mode doesn't align with the actual underlying link, that would be an NVDA issue and would be treated very differently than if it is a Groups.io issue.

I may be on the verge of figuring out what is causing the problem. I'll
report after a little more investigation.

I'm sorry if I forgot or didn't notice a detail in the over two hundred
messages I get a day. A little courtesey and consideration would work
wonders.

They work. And yes, we do. Do you not even bother reading the details I
give for this very purpose?

From an earlier message: "I do not have any issue with the Reply to Sender
link in Outlook 2016, eM Client, or Gmail webmail. This is a Thunderbird
bug. But now that I've done some additional resource it definitely is easy
to get around and you still use the Reply to Sender link, but don't activate
it directly, but bring up the context menu and go from there." Entire

If you think that you can think about a thing, inextricably attached to
something else, without thinking of the thing it is attached to, then you
have a legal mind.
