Steps to reproduce:

As thunderbird is lacking apple script abilities, I use apple script gui scripting to automatically compose messages from file maker.
After a recent thunderbird update (can't remember which) I cannot move to the sender drop down menu with a key stroke. In former builds F6 or F6+Shift took me to that menu.


Actual results:

Pressing F6 the focus toggles through a number of fields omitting the sender drop down menu.


Expected results:

Sender drop down menu should be included in the fields being accessible via F6 (and Tab).
Something for you to try, Richard.
It works, but it's not visible, it has no focus ring around the menulist. You can press F6 until you see no feedback, normally after it was in the message area. Then try with the cursor down and the popup shows.

I take the bug to add a focus ring.

Great, thanks! Hadn't noticed that just the focus was lost. And thanks for correcting the subject of this bug report.

I have a correction to the correction: serder
