Firefox Scrolling Problem up/down arrow keys


Hi,
Something ahs changed on my Firefox settings, because now when i open up a webpage, i get the cursor blinking on the page itself (not the mouse cursor, but the one you see when typing things). Then, when i try and scroll using the up/down arrows, it scolls to the bottom of the page automatically.

It is as if the page is kind of in editing mode, but i can't add/delete anything. Also, i have tried activating/deactivating scroll lock and nothing worked.

Has anyone got ANY idea about this please??? I'm pretty sure it is an up-to-date version and was working after it last updated. Something has only changed recently.

I don't use IE (therefore i don't know if the problem happens in there too).


Help would be greatly appreciated...this is an annoying problem!

Cheers

I have been experiencing the exact same problem, and it's annoying me too. It started happening right after upgrading to Windows 7, so I'm convinced that has something to do with it. Let me know if you have found any solution!

My System
Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same thing?

Actually I just found the solution

(for FF 3.5 on Mac)
Preferences -> Advanced -> General -> Accessibility -> UNCHECK Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages
