Moderated Strange right click behavior


Gene Warner
 

Apparently, my message windows open up maximized to begin with. And it seems that this behavior is intermittent because when I tried it on your message, it behaved properly. Just lovely!

Again might seem obvious but I was going to suggest that you make sure your message window is maximised as well.

I get around it with an even easier work around, I just down arrow once.
I will have to try this using narrator to see if it is a Thunderbird bug or something specific to JAWS.

Have definitely seen this sort of thing happen before, especailly in browsers. Although you are not doing a simulated right mouse click when you hit the application key, it is still somehow linked to your mouse pointer, which may not be moving accordinglyw hen you hit ctrl-home. You could probably "fix" this by rooting jaws to pC and then hitting the applications key. At least, I think that might work.

Hi everyone!

I have been experiencing some really strange behavior using JAWS 2022 and Thunderbird 91 on Windows 10.

While viewing a message in its own window, if I go to the beginning of the message (control+home) then press the application key, the context menu I get appears to be coming from Windows, not Thunderbird, but if I am any where else in the messagge, the context menu is from Thunderbird.
Very strange.

Now the question is, is this something being caused by JAWS or is it a Thunderbird problem?

Thanks!

Gene...
