Sadly both of these browsers are not accessible. really the only option 
right now is firefox. like I said firefox on the Gnome desktop is very 
accessible. I just don't know why the xfce desktop along with the menu 
is accessible. I've also installed libreoffice and this is also 
accessible by default. Thanks for the suggestion though. I'm not sure 
what is different between firefox and  thunderbird and the rest of the 
OS. Again any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks
