Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch the attached pyatspi accessible-event listener in a terminal
2. Switch focus to SeaMonkey open the Help menu, and up and down arrow in it
3. Open the Window menu, and up and down arrow in it

Expected results: A bunch of accessibility events would appear in the terminal

Actual results: As expected for the Help menu (and any other menu other than the Window menu). But for the Window menu, there is absolutely nothing output by the listener.

Impact: SeaMonkey's Window menu is inaccessible to users of the Orca screen reader.
Joanmarie: Seen in which version? You may answer by copy-pasting the lines "User agent" and "Build identifier" found at the end of the about: page (seen by typing "about:" without the quotes, then Enter, in the URL bar); the same information can also be found near the top of the "Help → Troubleshooting information" page.

Does the bug also appear in SeaMonkey 2.44a1? It can be downloaded from the latest-comm-central-* subfolders (depending on your OS and 32- vs 64-bit wordsize) of
Component: General → UI Design

Oops. I thought this was a different bug. Sorry!! It only appears in SeaMonkey (including the nightly). Thunderbird doesn't have a Window menu.
