Thunderbird Quick key folder navigation addon

My thunderbird just installed a update to version 78.3.2.  This update once again made the quick key folder addon unreliable. Sometimes it works and other times it does not.


Re: messages aren't read out automatically in the mail app

 

Hi,

An earlier version of this bug was fixed a while ago, but resurfaced after Windows 10 Mail’s executable file was renamed this year. I deployed a fix in Windows 10 App Essentials add-on back in February this year but waited for the new app to go live for everyone in summer before sending an official fix to NV Access for review. The next NVDA version in development (2020.4) will come with a built-in fix.

Cheers,

Joseph

Are you using NVDA?  If so, are you using the latest rc that just came out?  I this was fixed inthe bata cycle not sure as I do not have the rc installed and do not rely on the mail app.

Hello Gene and list,
yes, this is normal behavior. When you run NVDA from the installer, it
uses the preferences stored in your user profile just like an
installed version would,
Best,
Felix

This may not be new behavior but I never had an installed version on the

Hi all,

NVDA 2020.3rc1 has been released. This is a release candidate, and unless
any critical issues are found, this will be identical to the 2020.3 release.
I would encourage everyone to test this release please.

There are improvements to stability and performance, particularly in Office.
eSpeak-NG has been updated, and there are new touchscreen options. We've
also added new emulated system keys in the input gestures dialog.

Likewise here. NVDA's volume in the system sound mixer is at 100%, as is NVDA's speech volume on the desktop and secure screens.

Try whatever key you use as your NVDA. Key plus A.  I couldn’t think of the name of that key when I was talking with you this morning.  Do you use the insert key?  I think the shift key is easier.  I know you don’t have a lap top.  I do.  Let me know if this works.

Hi rosemarie! I cannot hear the email read out when I press enter either. I have to arrow down through the email, and read it line by line or word by word, just like you read an article. Nvda works best with the Windows 10 mail app. Only nvda works consistently. Jaws keeps reading the title of a message that I have already deleted.

Re: Installation issues

Quentin Christensen
 

Indeed, as Gene said, all versions of NVDA, including the latest NVDA 2020.3 RC1 should work fine on Windows 7.  The only caveat, is that since NVDA 2017.4, you need to have Windows 7 Service Pack 1.  There is no reason not to use SP1, however if installing Windows 7 from scratch using old installation media, it may not come with SP1 out of the box.

Meanwhile, Jim, did you manage to get NVDA installed?

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi, I’m not sure if the latest version of NVDA will work on windows seven.
I don’t see why it wouldn’t.  It probably will if you have the proper
updates that windows seven has.  The last time I used it. I was using NVDA
version 19 01  but my 7 box bit the dust and I had to upgrade to win ten.

Hiya folks,



Have had an afternoon I’d rather forget trying to update NVDA to its latest
version 2020.2



I tried updating within the program and also download the full installation
file and both fail each time it tries to go to installing it.



I’ve also uninstalled it and tried it that way still no luck then I could
not install an earlier version to I got hold of version 2016.3 then it
installed and I could only go up to 2019 and then same issues happened
again.



Is anyone else having this issue? Am running a windows 7, 64bit PC.
