I am using Windows 11 with Thunderbird. I do see a minor focus issue
with Thunderbird. In particular, when I first launch Thunderbird,
sometimes, if you wish to use the numpad keys to read the
name/subject of an unopened message, NVDA says 'blank.' At times
just after launch, the status line does not read with the insert +
end keystroke. A simple F6 key press and then tab key press

Thank you Gene, it's certainly a problem I can live with.
Just thought someone else might have experienced the same.

Windows 11 is technically similar to Windows 10 and using that
version of Windows shouldn't cause the problem. I use it on
Windows 10 without the problem.
You may try the installed version of Thunderbird if you like.
I suspect there is some sort of minor problem with your
installation of Windows 11 that is causing this behavior. The
problem is a minor one and drastic action such as placing a
new copy of Windows 11 on the computer and reinstalling
everything to see if that solves the problem is, in my
opinion, an enormous amount of work that I don't think is
justified to solve such a small problem. I would simply work
around it by closing the program and running it when you want
to use it again.
If you want to try to eliminate the problem, I have no
objection to trying an installed copy of Thunderbird.

up my win11 machine using current NVDA and thunderbird
portable. When I move from thunderbird to another program
window (alt plus tab) and then come back to thunderbird (alt
plus tab), the list of messages is "not available". Only
after I tab and shift tab does it become available. I am
new to this thunderbird portable; so I'm wondering if it's
just a thing with the portable version and maybe should I go
back to an installed version which I've used for years with
only a different set of problems.
For a nation to admit it has done grievous wrongs and will strive to correct them for the betterment of all is no vice;
For a nation to claim it has always been great, needs no improvement and to cling to its past achievements is no virtue!
