Using December JAWS 2019 Update Pressing Enter No Longer Activates Links in Thunderbird


David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

The following issue consistently occurs in Thunderbird.

After updating JAWS 2019 to the new December update I find that pressing enter on a link within an email no longer activates that link.

Instead, pressing enter moves the virtual cursor to the top of the message. I have checked the "link activation" setting within quick settings and the behavior is the same regardless of what this option is set for.

I am able to activate the link if I press the space key or the slash key on the numeric keypad. Can anybody else confirm this with JAWS 2019 and Thunderbird? The initial JAWS 2019 release did not have this problem.
