Page Down when text input selected

I need the "Page Down" button to actually "down the page" even when text input is selected. It is crucial to my comfort to have this function on websites. And I was very disappointed when it didn't work out. This is especially nonsensical for one-line text input zones. Please, I don't want to go back to Chrome for this function.

Hence I suggested to post a comment;   maybe it will get the ball rolling again.

The last comment was posted a year ago;   apparantly developers don't find this important enough to work on as not many people are asking to get this fixed.

As a workaround you could just get your cursor out of the text input field (after you've already entered some text);   use the page down key, and when you're done, get back to your text input field   -   the text will still be there.
But you're probably already doing that .....

If I'm going to touch my mouse then I don't need to use "page down" anymore because I can use mouse wheel. But I don't want to move my hand to a mouse, I want my hands on a keyboard. I want "page down" to work properly, for I don't need to use a mouse in my workflow.

I don't use a mouse;   don't even even have (nor want) a mouse .....


Maybe wait to see if they'll start working on that bug report again ?
