Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:23.0) Gecko/20130607 Firefox/23.0 Iceweasel/23.0a2 (Nightly/Aurora)
Build ID: 20130607004017

Steps to reproduce:

# su - nobody -c 'HOME=/tmp/$$ firefox'\ https://plus.google.com/104014917856468748129/posts
Then hit spacebar with all my might.


Actual results:

Nothing.


Expected results:

Scrolled down.
I even clicked various parts of the page to be sure the "focus" was correct.
Still I couldn't scroll down with the Spacebar.
I had to use PgDn. It's just not fair!

P.S., "

Is ungrammatical. That's because the bug report form is rigged that way, to make the user look ungrammatical, despite my protests.

Did you try with a fresh profile?

Dear sir, can you explain to me how anything can be fresher,
more pristine, than
# su - nobody -c 'HOME=/tmp/$$ firefox'\ https://plus.google.com/104014917856468748129/posts

Pressing the spacebar does nothing on this page https://plus.google.com/104014917856468748129/posts, although it works on other pages on the same profile.

It doesn't work in old versions of Firefox, like FF8.
It works if you set Focus within the "About Post Photos Videos" Area with the Mouse first.
Probably a Site Bug anyways.

I tested with IE9, it works fine directly without clicking on "About Post Photos Videos" Area.

Neither the page up/page down buttons, nor the spacebar, work on some pages.

If they extend off the bottom of the screen, and lack scrollbars, and are incompatible with my scrolling software, they can be unreadable. If they have scrollbars, they are just harder to read.
