This new system is extremly confusing. Especially if you forget the caret at some place in the page and then you try to scroll with the arrows and it jumps to where the caret is. I also think this should be off by default. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on somewhere in the page (not an edit box). 2. Scroll with the mouse or scroll bar. 3. Click any arrow key. Actual Results: The focus moved to where the caret was left. Expected Results: The page scrolls as it did in old mozilla versions.
Switching the display of the caret is F7
Thanks alot. I just found it in the keyboard shortcuts help file. However, since it just appeared out of nowhere, I couldn't tell how to disable it. The reasonable place to look for it was in Prefs->Keyboard Nav. Maybe there should be a toggle there?
For one thing, I think the feature should be automatically toggled off when the app launches. At least that way people wouldn't be stuck forever not finding the off switch for it.
