Re: Volume in Thunderbird


While you don’t need to know this to solve the problem, knowing it may be useful at some point in terms of how configurations can be set to work.
I hadn’t thought about you having a Thunderbird configuration.  I thought you meant that when you opened the volume control, your volume went down and stayed down even when you returned to Thunderbird.  Since you had a Thunderbird configuration, the volume evidently got higher when you returned to Thunderbird.  It wouldn’t have mattered what you did, any time you left the Thunderbird window, the volume would have gone down and every time you returned, it would have gone up.  The cconfiguration was set to be active any time you were in the Thunderbird window.
Configurations can be set to be active when you are in a program window and not active when you aren’t.

Thank you Brian and Gene.  I will file those suggestions.  In the
meantime, I deleted the thunderbird configuration from NVDA.  I didn't
know it was there nor what it was good for.  So now everything is better
(I think).
