Is scrolling possible with function keys that emit escape sequences?

There is an Add-On called Shortkeys that allows custom actions to be assigned to various standard key combinations (ctrl-A, alt-X, etc.) but this does not work for keys that emit escape code sequences.

I have a keypad that I use for motion commands, including scrolling, in my vim editor and I would like to use the same keys to scroll up/down on a loaded page in Firefox. Is there any way, including using some Add-On that would allow these keys that emit escape sequences to be assigned to page motions?

Thanks for any insights.

You will have to contact the Addon developer to ask those questions.
