Thunderbird 3.1.x has accessibility related issues when opening a large mail folder
Binary package hint: thunderbird
With Ubuntu Accessibility list I sent following letter this day morning:
This day morning in Lucid security unfortunately original Thunderbird
version is upgraded with 3.1.7 release my Lucid system.
With Orca 2.30 version this change resulting very slow list navigation
with mail folders, similar with Maverick original Orca 2.32 version if
an inbox folder have relative lot of messages.
If a folder have lot of messages, for example the focusing, navigation
operations is very slow after upgrade.
Another problem: if I choosing an email message, unable to read the
message body without not try jumping the caret with Tab or Shift+Tab
key. I not using present messages with new tab option.
See following bug, with partialy fixed the slowest list navigation
problem under Orca git master version to see what performance related problem we seeing with Orca and Thunderbird 3.1.7 release:
I absolute agree the security upgrades is very important, but this
change now kill Thunderbird accessibility. Prewious oldest awailable
Thunderbird 3.0.10 version is works fine with Lucid before this upgrade and wonderful usable with all tasks.
I known, Mozilla changed the products supporting model and your work is absolute not easy, because you need following the upgrades. But if now
happened this problem, what will be happening for example with Firefox 4
Before I do upgrade, I forgot hold Thunderbird related packages
awailable packages source to undo this upgrade?
Or this is not possible, what will be happening for example the Lucid
LTS release to we get back Thunderbird accessibility support?
Have you got an ydea how can possible fix this bug for example an LTS release?
Compatibility purpose not possible do an alternative package the prewious good working Thunderbird 3.0.10 release if the main version is upgraded with full newest upstream version, for example:
This is important the Mozilla products, because another components are not rolling updated, for example gnome-orca package is not updated when a new upstream release is released, and for example if the Mozilla products is upgraded with newest upstream releases, possible oldest awailable Orca version not perfect handling with some components, this is important with accessibility.
