No, development still continues, although only on the test
version (currently 1.8a6). Visit http://www.mozilla.org/access/features
for more information. Basically, you can expect them to focus more on
Firefox development only and to keep the separate parts of "Mozilla" in
the respective products such as Firefox (browser), Thunderbird (email)
and Sunbird (calendaring) instead of one application that performs
all-in-one functions. Visit http://www.mozilla.org/products/ for more
information.

I just hope end-users who can contribute and screen-reader
manufacturers continue to support these products.

You can view the current information regarding Window-Eyes
compatibility on http://www.mozilla.org/access/windows/window-eyes.
There is some information on JAWS for Mozilla on
http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/s2s/latest/jaws1/home/index.shtml.

Happy computing,
