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:
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.
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 was the QA 
contact for to  szhu is no longer with netscape, and these 
bugs could lie dormant otherwise.  sorry for spam.
