Sudden scrolling to the bottom of the page

Since the latest Firefox download, I'm having the occasional problem where a certain page will suddenly scroll to the bottom and all efforts to scroll back up prove unsuccessful. Sometimes this affects all pages across all tabs, sometimes only certain pages. Closing and re-opening the browser has no effect. The only way to get back to normal is to restart the computer. Is this a Firefox problem?

You may have switched on caret browsing.

You can toggle caret browsing on/off by pressing F7 (Mac: fn + F7).

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Accessibility: [ ] "Always use the cursor keys to navigate within pages"

Note that this is an accessibility feature of Firefox.

Did the sensitivity on the trackpad or mouse change or have a driver update recently?

The only setting I can think of is the scrolling. Go to about:preferences#advanced under General Tab > Browsing

Do you have an example of these sites?

The only recent change was the installation of a new mouse abut a month ago.

Regret I don't know where to look for General Tab>Browsing.

Caret Out {web link} Disables change of the caret browse mode by shortcut key(F7).


If the above does not work,

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

Thank you. Caret browsing might be the problem, since I'm always hitting keys accidentally and getting things I don't want. I'll remember F7.
