  I've noticed something weird.  When I'm in Outlook Express, and I'm deleting 
messages in a subfolder message by message, and I get to the bottom of the list 
and there's an unread message there which I haven't dealt with, Jaws will not 
tell me that the message is unread; but rather, will only tell me from whom the 
message is.  To get the status of the message, I have to arrow up and then down 
again.  Here's another weird thing.  When I press enter to open a message and 
read it, Jaws will often not start at the top of the window but often somewhere 
in the middle.  I have to press the control key to stop speech, then, press 
control+Home to get back to the top of the window and start reading again.  
Also, When I try to do tabbed browsing with Jaws 7.1 beta and Mozilla Firefox, 
it quite simply cannot be done.  This is because the hotkey which causes a link 
to open in a new tab in the background so you can go to it later does not work.
