Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling Jaws? Don’t know if this will help or not. It could be in the latest update of Thunderbird.

Subject: problem with Jaws and, at least, Thunderbird
Hello Group Members,
I am running Win7 PC with Jaws 18 and have a problem wherein when
reading messages in Thunderbird, I press enter on a message and
everything is fine for a number of messages. Then, all of a sudden,
Jaws will read the subject line and add something about where my email
files are stored and then, there is no more speech. Sometimes, well, at
least twice, it worked for me to invoke the touch cursor and then the PC
cursor and Jaws would read the email.
I can tab out of the email and Jaws will read everything else, but going
back to the email message, there is no speech. It is not related to one
message, as I can go back to a message that was already read and it will
have the same issue.
The only way I have found to solve the issue is to unload Jaws and start
it up again.
Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Sometimes, I will
reload and only get through a couple of messages before this happens
again. At other times, I can do all of my email, often with over 100
messages with no trouble at all.
