This problem disappears after opening up another tab. Noticed most often when starting up and going straight into ebay. I normally click somewhere on the page I want to scroll (not on a web link) then press the appropriate arrow or Page up/down keys. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch firefox. 2. Goto www.ebay.co.uk 3. Press up, down, page-up or page-down. Nothing happens. 4. Open another tab. 5. Return to the tab showing ebay. 6. Up, down, page-up and page-down keys now work. Actual Results: Arrow or page-up/down keys did not scroll the web page until another tab was opened (and optionally closed). Expected Results: Up, down, page-up or page-down keys should scroll the active page accordingly.
works for me - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a5pre) Gecko/20070428 Minefield/3.0a5pre ID:2007042804

And WFM as well using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/18.104.22.168 Steve, can you reproduce with a new profile?
Created a new windows user account as suggested, launched firefox, keyed in www.ebay.co.uk and the up/down arrow keys worked. Bookmarked ebay, closed then re-launched firefox and went to ebay via the bookmark. This time the up/down arrow keys did not work. So to reproduce, amend step 2 to read "select bookmark for http://www.ebay.co.uk
Steve, I used the following steps and could not reproduce this: STR: 1. Open Firefox 2. Go to www.ebay.co.uk 3. Bookmark the page into the bookmark toolbar 3a. Go to google.com (only necessary if you have session saving on) 4. Quit Firefox 5. Open Firefox 6. Click the bookmark in the toolbar you create in #3 above Using those steps, I *cannot* reproduce. Can you reproduce if you create a new profile and only modify it with the added bookmark using the steps above? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager
Tried the above steps and the up/down keys did not work. I tested the same process on two other laptops running windows xp and firefox 22.214.171.124. On both of these machines the keys worked. After I upgraded one machine (identical setup to the one I'm using) to firefox 126.96.36.199 the up/down keys failed when following those steps.
On the computer that you are having this problem on open up Firefox and press the f7 key. This will turn on/off Firefox's caret browsing. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Accessibility.browsewithcaret#Background
I wasn't aware of pressing f7. Anyway it was switched off. Switching it on allowed the ebay web page to scroll. Doing a little more testing and found the following (on the computer with the problem – firefox 188.8.131.52). 1. Launch firefox (default home page is google.co.uk). 2. Select ebay.co.uk bookmark (up/down keys do not work). 3. Press f7 4. Click on No when asked to turn on caret browsing. 5. Up/Down arrow keys now work.
so this is WFM
