Bug 649929 introduced various accessibility fixes to help read the new About window better. Porting those over to Thunderbird will be extremely trivial. Assigning this to me and will provide a patch shortly.
This:
1. adds a description to the window itself that helps screen readers read the version info immediately after the title.
2. adds an explicit description to the page that contains the "community" and other info, preventing screen readers from applying their own logic and picking up some bogus stuff.
