Cannot [Shift] + Page up/down to select text

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) for Ubuntu (running Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS)

So when editing text in a textbox on Gmail, I can press and hold [Shift] and then use arrow keys to select text, but I cannot use Page Up/Page Down to select faster as expected. (Works in Chrome)

Background: Trying to trim long email threads to avoid them becoming infinite and causing a quantum singularity close to where I am sitting.

Not sure if this is a Gmail or Firefox issue.

Anyone have any ideas?

Shift plus Page Up/Page Down should still work.

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.
