Currently we disable Accessibility on Mac for Thunderbird. Previously it was not available in the core platform, it is now available for Thunderbird, so it would be good to consider enabling it.

At the moment, the accessibility MozMill test that we have currently fails on Mac if accessbility is enabled (it passes on the other platforms):

SUMMARY-UNEXPECTED-FAIL | test-message-header.js | test-message-header.js::test_a11y_attrs
  EXCEPTION: headerAccessible.name for Subject was 'null'; expected 'Subject: This is a really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, long subject.'

Can you point me at the test_a11y_attrs source?

Now that bug 967432 is fixed, this appears to no longer be an issue:

(the test oranges are due to another bug)
Not sure of the actual effects of this bug, but I'm assuming that it'll enable some features for accessibility readers and the like, and hopefully make us consistent with Firefox, and less divergence from Gecko.
