Details

On pages which are wider an the browser window, using the arrow keys or page
up/page down to scroll causes the horizontal scrollbar to move to the far left.

To reproduce, load any page (I tried http://www.yahoo.com/ as well as
http://mozilla.org/ ), size the window down, move the horizontal scrollbar to
the right, and use the arrow keys to move up and down. This causes the
horizontal scrollbar to reset itself.

This is on the Linux nightly build of M11, 1999-10-07.
Also occurs with 1999-10-12-16-M11 on Windows NT.

Capsule summary: vertical panning of the right postion of a page
wide enough to need horizontal scrollbars works with mousing movement
of vertical scrollbar, but if tried with keyboard scrolling, the page jumps
back to the left.
