I had a chance to pull in the entire Gnome session a little while ago on
my Debian testing system. In this configuration Orca reads Mozilla
applications. I guess now that we know that Orca will read these
applications in a full Gnome environment the puzzle to solve is why they
are not reading in XFCE in Debian but are reading in XFCE in other
distros. It also seems possible to me that the issue is not related to
xfce directly since the ubuntu bug report mentions this not working in
LXDE either. If anyone has any insight on this it would be greatly
