Hi, folks.

I hate to keep bugging you about my dilemmas in terms of getting Jaws to 
work at least reasonably well with Thunderbird e-mail, but the tech support 
folks at Freedom Scientific don't really have that much info  So, thanks for 
bearing with me..

I have just been given a new computer at work, and am having another 
interesting problem with Thunderbird e-mail.  On the work computer I was 
using before, I was able to read and edit what I was writing in a reply, and 
then go back to reading e-mails received without having to toggle the cursor 
on and off using insert Z.  Since the original computer had Jaws 10 on it, I 
installed Jaws 10 on the new computer, hoping for the same result.  But, 
alas, I was not so lucky.  On the new computer, I found that I had to toggle 
insert Z off to write and edit replies, and then back on to read e-mails 
received.  Since Jaws 11 had just come out, I decided to see if the problem 
would be  resolved with the new installation, but still, no luck.

Does anyone know what I can do to correct things, so that I don't have to be 
toggling insert Z on and off all of the time while working in Thunderbird? 
I have to believe that something in the Jaws settings needs to be changed, 
but can't seem to find it when reviewing my Jaws configurations.

Thanks for anything you can do to help.
