User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120615 Firefox/15.0a2 Iceweasel/15.0a2 Build ID: 20120615042006 Steps to reproduce: Browsed e.g., http://jidanni.org/lang/chin_eng_coincidences.txt Hit SPACEBAR several times. Now we are looking at the middle of this file. Now hit UP ARROW just once to inch up just one line. Actual results: Whammo, we are now looking at the top of the file. Our former position is now lost. We must page down over and over to continue reading where we were. Expected results: It should just inch up one line. Also please test the DOWN ARROW too.
Nether Chromium nor Midori exhibit such incredulous behavior.
P.S., the HOME and END keys no longer work. Thank goodness they still work in Chromium, etc.
Repeating our experiment with PAGE UP instead of UP ARROW, we find the same problem. It is as if all our SPACEBAR hits are not counted, and it is assumed we are still at the top of the file. Same with PAGE DOWN.
This is not reproducible for me with the latest 16.0a1 nightly on a new profile. Can you please confirm?
Hmm, seems fixed today on the very same Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120615 Firefox/15.0a2 Iceweasel/15.0a2 on my j3 computer. So one of my other computers has something bad in its config. OK, closing.
Thanks for confirming.
I see, I had http://kb.mozillazine.org/Accessibility.browsewithcaret turned on.
