A few more questions on Thunderbird

Yes, I had the view set to read the mail in HTML format.  Doesn't this work
with tb?  I thought that would make navigation easier and format more

I'll try setting the view to plain text.  
 Tb doesn't work with HTML view, should that be noted on the Orca bug list?
As I indicated, I could navigate to the message body and read it in the HTML
view, but it certainly wasn't easy to get there.

Perhaps this happens because you are reading the mails in original html? 
Take a look into the view menu -> Message Body as..
Here "plain text" should be activated.
