Summary: [PP] Holding down arrow key on Mac only results in one scroll event → Holding down arrow key on Mac only results in 1 scroll event
Target Milestone: M11
reassign to myself, the bug is in joki's event code. I need him to review it. Auto-key events are supposed to generate only one keydown but the scrolling code is checking for arrow keys only on keydown (rather than keypress). I'm going to remove the [pp] designation as changes will affect all platforms and it's likely that key repeat problems will be found on Linux and Windows.

this was fixed last week
Using this morning's build (1999101812) on Mac, arrow page keys, and Page Up/Page Down keys no longer do anything. (0 scroll events.) Thus, re-opening. (Worked fine on this morning's Linux build, Win32 won't decompress.)

resolve as fixed. Actually it does work on Macintosh. There does seem to be a focus problem though. You need to click in the page in order for the key events to be received. Eli--Are there other focus problems like this? Is a bug already filed?
Doh. I can't believe that. I mean, I just double-checked, and I do believe it, but I *know* I explicitedly placed focus within the window by clicking before re- opening the bug, and the arrow key didn't do anything. I wonder if I could have clicked in dead space. Many duplicate bugs have been reported on the focus issue; 9701 is root.
Doh. Good morning. I mean, "pressed the arrow key twice", not "double-clicked".
