Since I am using the Firefox Version 3.5. scrolling with the keyboard doesn't work properly. When I hit the arrow key for scrolling down it directly jumps to the end of the page. The same happens when I try to scroll up. I can still use the mouse or the scroll bars at the side.

Reproducible: Always



Expected Results:  
Scrolling down or up line by line

I think you accidentally turned on caret browsing. Tools > Options > Advanced > General ? Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages.
You can simply switch it off by pressing f7.
