However, when you toggle the state of, say, a checkbox, using the spacebar, the screen will also scroll. Definitely doesn't seem to be intended functionality, and seems to be due to something similar to Bug 53896, although since that was fixed, I somehow doubt it's the same cause. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Focus onto a checkbox 2. Hit the spacebar Actual Results: Toggles checkbox and scrolls down. Expected Results: Toggle checkbox, that's it.
I'm also guessing that this might be related to Bug 214843 and its patch.
Unrelated spam: Brendan accidentally cited this bug in a checkin comment when he meant to cite bug 313684.
confirming Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051023 SeaMonkey/1.1a It is scrolling down to the bottom. Select one of the checkboxes there and scroll a bit up, so you still see it, and press spacebar multiple times. First time page scrolls to the bottom and checkbox changes state, next times page can't scroll down anymore, only checkbox changes state.

As I wrote in Bug 441200, this happens if the scrollbar is the child of an 'a' element. I put a reduced testcase in URL. PS: I didn't checked if the bug happens also with a parent other than 'a'. I only verified it doesn't happen if 'a' is removed from the testcase.
Reproduced with recent Firefox versions.

I encounter this bug in Firefox 32.0.3 Mac. The "Vote" feature here on Bugzilla shows this bug. I click "Vote". In the resulting page, the check box is focused in blue. I press Space. * Expected result : * The box gets toggled. * Actual result : * The box gets toggled AND the page scrolls down. This is incorrect. And this has a perverse effect : Because of the scrolling down, the user thinks that the check box has not been toggled.
This bug is present in Firefox Developer Edition 40.0a2 (2015-05-20) on both Windows and OS X.
I was going to report a duplicate. Win7, Nightly 42.0a1 (2015-08-07). Confirm this bug with testcase: data:text/html,<body style="height:4000px"><input type="checkbox">
I can not reproduce this issue on: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:48.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0 As the actual result is the box gets toggled WITHOUT the page scrolling down. I will close this issue as works for me. If this issue persists, please feel free to reopen.
