Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050930 SeaMonkey/1.1a
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050930 SeaMonkey/1.1a

In the mail-news 3-pane window, pressing the spacebar causes forward scrolling
of the message preview pane regardless of which pane currently has focus.
Likewise, shift+spacebar used to backward scroll the message pane, but now only
does when the message pane has focus.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open mail-news in the 3-pane window. Pick any message that is long enough to
cause vertical scrolling. Either the folder or thread pane should have focus at
this point.
2. Press the spacebar to scroll down, the message pane scrolls as expected.
3. Press shift+spacebar to scroll the message back up.

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens. Neither the message nor the thread pane moves.

Expected Results:  
The message should scroll back up. If you give focus to the message pane (e.g.
via f6), shift+spacebar works as expected.

mozilla 1.7x does not have this problem, nor does Thunderbird IIRC. In the off
chance it is theme related, I'm using classic.

Reproduced with TB 1.6a1-0925; 
WFM with Seamonkey 1.0a-0806 (1.8 branch), Moz 1.7.12, TB 1.5b1-0928.
I don't have a 1.9-branch Seamonkey to confirm.
Severity: normal → minor

WFM with SeaMonkey 1.1a/20050830 but reproducible with SeaMonkey 1.1a/20050831,
maybe related to Core 'scroll' bug 212789?

Explicitly allow shift key

Previously to bug 295288 we automatically ignored the shift key.
