Reverting a change from December 2009 commit 6c53a29d where IAccessible NVDAObject's name property was forced to contain content from IAccessibleText if there was no caret present.
This was supposed to allow focusable labels in Thunderbird to read nicer. However, this caused a long-standing issue where the content of alerts in web browsers would speak twice, and Thunderbird now seems to oddly expose a caret on the labels thus disabling the code change anyway.
Removing this code may possibly cause some other regressions as its very old. However, if regressions are found they should be handled specificly for each case, as clearly this code was too general.
Should be a fix re #3481. May affect re #2442, #2745
