Re: Unable To Display Status Bar IN Latest Thunderbird Version 102.1.1

hi Gene,

I'm sorry about sounding a bit coarse, but I am on a lot of lists. I enjoy learning new things. Obviously on heavy traffic lists, I don't read every message.  But using my method of grouping and filtering, I can literally get between 1000 and 2000 messages daily and spend between an hour and an hour and a half total in going through them. 

Now i don't know how many times, I have gotten e-mails to heavy traffic lists from people who say things like: "hasn't this thread gone on long enough" or "moderators please close this topic."  When I contact them, I find out that they have all their messages going into the inbox and don't know or could care less about filtering and grouping.

I guess what I'm saying is that people who won't/can't learn about such things should be on heavy traffic list or if they are they shouldn't complain about the heavy traffic.

...And before, I get booted from this list, let me say that's about all I have to say about this topic--since it definitely isn't about NVDA.

I don't group messages in that way.  Its interesting to see that use of the status bar.

Hi Curtis,

If you filter messages and if you group by conversation, reading the status bar is a quick way of determining how many messages are in a particular folder and how many are unread.

This is very helpful if like me, you have 17 mailing lists you are subscribed to and want to select and read only those messages from each list you are interested in.

What is the importance of a status bar in TB?

No.  The issue now and in perhaps more than one earlier version is that when you issue the read status line command, NVDA key end, it isn't read and the announcement no status line information found, or something very similar is spoken.

Hi, was saying I can disable it or enable it, I thought that was the issue in the earlier t-bird.

Are you saying the read status line command reads it and when does it read it, when it is checked or unchecked.  It shouldn't be shown if it is unchecked and it shouldn't be read.

I get the message "unchecked."

If yew mean in the tool bars submenu of the view menu, it is checked by default and when I read the status bar, I get the message no status bar information.

they updated so status bar you can under the view menu enable or disable. 102.1.2.

This may be something NVDA will have to update.  The status bar is still read when using JAWS.  Whether Thunderbird or NVDA should correct the situation is something I'll leave to the two sets of developers.

Hi Group,

Has anyone upgraded Thunderbird to the latest version 102.1.1?  If so, can you read the status bar?  I cannot on my system: Windows 11, 64 bit with latest NVDA 2022.2.
