From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; 0.8) Gecko/20010215 BuildID: 2001021508 Normally you can scroll a page using the arrow-keys, but following the steps below make the arrow keys nonresponsive, and you have to scroll by mouse (or do the workaround to reactivate). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla and another program window or a second Mozilla window. 2. Go to any URL that has a page long enough to scroll. Don't do anything after pressing enter, let the page load. 3. Click on (or ALT-TAB to) the other program/Mozilla window. 4. Swap back to the first window. 5. Keyboard scrolling doesn't work. Clicking on the page doesn't help. Actual Results: Keyboard scrolling stops working. Expected Results: Keyboard scrolling should work. There are many ways to get this bug. Basically every time the browser gets a new URL in any way, if you swap windows while it's loading the URL, when you swap back keyboard scrolling doesn't work. The same bug has occurred for a long time on various versions, and has been tested on Win2000 WkSt (SP1) and WinNT4 WkSt (SP6a). Mozilla is the official release 0.8. Workaround: Click on the URL-field=address bar, then click on the displayed page. Keyboard scrolling reactivates, works every time. Woraround2: Try to scroll the page while it's loading. Even if there's not enough to scroll, this makes the keyboard scrolling work even if you swap windows.
over to event handling. I think this is already covered by other reports.

Sorry if spamming but isn't this related to bug #30841 ? Could the reporter tell us if text fields are unusable too? If yes, this is another way to disable keyboard (besides double right-clicking).
This bug duplicates bug 58250.
Agreed duping. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 58250 ***
