From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.13-4mdk i686; en-US; m15) BuildID: 2000041811 Using the right-click menu to select 'back' means that the pageup, pagedown, and spacebar keys do not work to scroll on the new page. Same for 'forward'. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Steps: 1)Start Mozilla 2)Load one page 3)Load another page 4)Right-click and select 'Back' from the menu 5)Attempt to use pageup or pagedown or spacebar to scroll the page (they don't work) Actual Results: Nothing. :) Expected Results: Supposed to scroll the page.
I see this on 60908, but I think it's just another consequence of the problem that you have to click within the content area for keybindings to work (once you use the context menu, the content area 'loses focus' and keybindings won't work until you click within it again). I'll try to find the bug # for that. sairuh, what do you think? (->keyboard navigation)

oops, I forgot that sairuh's not the qa contact for keyboard nav (who is going to be it in the meantime, now that szhu is gone?) well anyways, sairuh what do you think?
Confirmed on 060908. Looks like Ross is right: if you click on the content with the mouse, pageup/pagedown/etc start working again.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Matthew, as I said, though, the fact that you have to click within the viewport before navigational keybindings work is a known issue and has been reported previously. I just can't find it at the moment.
*spam* changing all open or resolved bugs that firstname.lastname@example.org was the QA contact for to email@example.com. szhu is no longer with netscape, and these bugs could lie dormant otherwise. sorry for spam.
