As a followup to this question, I've trying the ways to move through a webpage with the keyboard in Firefox 6.

However, there seems to be no way to do smooth, fine scale scrolling with the keyboard. Every time I hit one of the movement hot keys, the page either jumps down a page (I.e. w/ Page Down), or jumps to the next item/link (which may be in the same view, or jumps to a whole other section of the page).

Is there a way to achieve the same scrolling you get with the mouse in Firefox 6+?

I don't have this problem. The scrowling is available with the mouse or the keyboard arrows – Dsandre Sep 15 '11 at 15:54

I recommend the Firefox addon Yet Another Smooth Scrolling.

Use your arrow keys for keyboard scrolling.

@Dsandre Yes, but my view jumps instead of scroll... – hpy Sep 15 '11 at 16:03
@Penyuan Is it the case on every web pages ? – Dsandre Sep 15 '11 at 16:19
If that's happening I'd look into a plugin possibly causing it, default behavior is to scroll smoothly using arrow keys. – Howard Sep 15 '11 at 16:22
Keyboard scrolling is an option. – surfasb Sep 16 '11 at 9:43
