Hi, am using an HP laptop that has no mouse wheels. To scroll pages i use the up/down arrows. In Firefox pages don't scroll, but jump to top or bottom, depending on which arrow key i used, which doesn't allow me to view the middle of the page. My only option is to use the scroll bar, which is tedious as am very used to using the up/down arrows due to convenience of use. Any fixes please? Thanks. Crackit.

You may have switched on caret browsing.

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