At work, I use Jaws 8.0 with Thunderbird and Windows XP Professional.  I would 
love to use the 9.0 beta, but when I enter text in the body of a message, I 
cannot read what I have written.  Jaws announces the characters I'm typing, but 
no text appears on my braille display, and nothing happens when I use the Jaws 
"say all" command to read the text.

With Jaws 8, I use Daniel Dalton's scripts, but I find that when I allow 
Thunderbird to fill in E-mail addresses from my address book as I'm typing text 
in the "to" field, things get messy when I'm trying to send to someone who is 
not in my address book but whose address starts with the same letter or two as 
an address in my book.  I have to delete what Thunderbird automatically fills 
in and then type the rest of the address.

Does anyone know of a solution to this?
