I am currently taking an online computer course that requires typing. There is currently no way to type a space as the space key scrolls down one page. I see that keyconfig is not available for Firefox 39*. Is there another way to disable space bar scrolling in Firefox 39?

This happens as you are typing? That should not be. Does this happen everywhere, some sites, a few?

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

Keyconfig should be available for Firefox 39 AFAIK.

I don't think that there is a way to disable a page down with Space or a page up with Shift+Space. I've seen such request in the past and I can't remember doing this reliably like with a Greasemonkey script.

You shouldn't have a scroll action if you type in a text area.

Do you mean that you can't type a space on some web pages?

"Not available message displayed" for KeyConfig @

Tried to download and install anyway and received another incompatibility message.

Currently, I cannot type a space at the command prompts for the one training site. The space bar functions as it should at other sites. I realize it is probably a site issue, but a workaround would be very helpful.

There are a number of similarly named keyconfig extensions...

The one I used in the old days is here:
