But NVDA needs to be tweaked so that
Provided only TH-cells without scope=row are interpreted as column headers.
That means, when one navigates left into column #1 , say for the gross profit rows under Toys, NVDA

This issue is still reproducible in Firefox 63.0.3 and NVDA 2018.4 Beta 4. It would really help if Mozilla fix this sometime in the future. Speaking at least for myself, I know how annoying it can be if you have many complex tables every day (i.e. I work every day with income statements and balance sheets in browser). Therefore I prefer to disable reporting of tables and row and column headings rather than hearing multiple not relevant headings reported every time when navigating in a new cell.
