I cant use my navaigation arrows to scroll smoothly through a web page, it just goes to the bottom. Work OK in IE

Until recently all I needed to do to scroll through a web page was to use my navigation arrows. Now when I hit the down arrow I go to the bottom of the web page.

You may be in Caret Browsing Mode. The F7 key toggles Caret Browsing on and off with each tap of that key.




You need to update the following. The Plugin version(s) shown below was/were submitted with your question and is/are out of date. You should update to avoid known security issues with the version(s) you have installed. Click on "More system info..." to the right of your question to see what was included with your question.

  • Shockwave Flash 10.2 r159
  1. Check your plugin versions on either of the following links':
  2. Update the Flash plugin to the latest version.
    • Download and SAVE to your Desktop so you can find the installer later
    • If you do not have the current version, click on the "Player Download Center" link on the "Download and information" or "Download Manual installers" below
    • After download is complete, exit Firefox
    • Click on the installer you just downloaded and install
      • Windows 7 and Vista: may need to right-click the installer and choose "Run as Administrator"
    • Start Firefox and check your version again or test the installation by going back to the download link below

Thank You. The F7 key worked, everything is back to normal.
