Mac Voice Control not working in Thunderbird, but older Dictation does....?

Does anyone know why Apple OS Voice Control does not work in Thunderbird? I wake up Voice Control, try to dictate a sentence in a new mail message window and nothing shows up. Dictation works in Ms Word, Safari browser, and all other apps.

My Macbook Pro used to have Dictation and Enhanced dictation. With the Catalina OS-- Enhanced Dictation was renamed "Voice Control". Standard dictation remains and it works in Thunderbird, but Voice Control is a lot better. The two cannot run simultanously. I am on 68.10.0 and Mac OS Catalina 10.15.6

Hope Accessibility is important and someone can assist. Wrist injury means I need dictation.

Upgraded to 68.11.0 and still no Voice Control. Web search and KB search here brings up zilch in terms of clues
