I'm using Phoenix release Gecko/20021012 0.3 and sometimes I find two problems
involving the keyboard.
1) The keyboard doesn't work to scroll the page up or down. It only happens
2) There are times that I can't write on text boxes or the adress bar. I click
with the mouse on them but nothing happens.
I saw that if I use another program (any program) and write something on it and
then return to Phoenix, those 2 problems desapear.
I have Mozilla 1.1a and that doesn't happen.

I have donwloaded a newer version - Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US;

I tested all the situations where the keyboard didn't work and now it is working

Hi David
Testing again, I saw that the first problem still happens (sometimes).
There are times that scrolling up or down the page with the keyboard don't work.
Changing to another program and returnig tho Phoenix solves the problem.

I didn't find problems on writning on text boxes or the adress bar with 20021019

1. check where your mouse/keyboard focus is when scrolling is not working..

2. I experience this problem too on a slovak SMS site..
There's a text box where I type SMS text, then another text box where I write
other information.. Sometimes clicking to the other text box doesn't focus it,
the cursor remains in the 1st text box, I have to click 3 or 4 times to switch
the focus.
I don't know if this helps - there's a javascript counting number of SMS
characters written in a text box. I don't have problems with text box on other

It looks OK now.

Marking as WORKSFORME based on reporters last comment. As long as the page has
focus you should be able to scroll it with the arrow keys.
