Down/up arrow keys change settings instead of scrolling

Post by FranL » Fri Dec 29, 2017 7:37 pm

I'm using NoScript 10.1.6.1 in FF 57.0.3 on Windows 7. To reproduce:
  1. Open the NoScript Setting page using the toolbar icon.
  2. Do NOT click anywhere on the page.
  3. Press down arrow once. Instead of the page scrolling (as would happen for any other Web page), the first entry in the list of domains changes to the preset to the right of its current preset (e.g., TRUSTED -> UNTRUSTED or UNTRUSTED -> CUSTOM).
  4. Press up arrow once. The domain entry that changed above changes to the preset to the left of its current preset.
Sometimes, the checkboxes for the preset open on the down arrow press and close on the up arrow press.

If I first click once in an empty area of the Settings page, then the down/up arrow keys scroll the page (because my domain list is large enough to scroll — which may be a prerequisite for this to happen).

I am in my W10 right now, and have updated NoScript to beta 10.1.6.2rc1. If I understood correctly what you describe, I cant replicate it in this computer. I ll try later in my W7, before updating NoScript to latest beta, and post what I find.

I too have just tried the sequence on my Win10 computer and running FF FV57.0.3 with NS 10.1.6.1.
After clicking on the NS icon at the top right of my FF window and then pressing any of the four arrow keys, absolutely nothing happens. No scrolling, no changing of presets, nothing.

I was able to reproduce exactly.

Open a Blank tab,
Click on NS icon that has "?" (or open settings page from FF Hamburger menu, Add-ons - NS - Click Preferences)
NS Settings/List Tab opens
Do not click on page (tab)
When I use down arrow "First" entry in List is the one that accepts Arrow presses by changing as user describes
If I click on Blank space in Tab "before" using arrows, then the Page scrolls as expected.

Maybe this is a Feature? ;-) :-) :-)

I could reproduce as well, in the Options tab (maybe the confusion for those who couldn't reproduce is that it does not happen in the popup).
About to release 10.1.6.2 stable, I'll give keyboard navigation some much needed love (especially for accessibility) in next iteration, thanks!

I bumped into this topic trying to report similar enhancement proposal (for the current version - 10.6.1).

ALT-SHIFT-N opens the permission "popup"
←/→ - changes permissions for the first domain on the list
↑/↓ - could move to the next element on the list ("List full addresses" turned on)

Currently ↑/↓ also changes permissions. It is required to press TAB/SHIFT-TAB multiple times to move the focus to the another domain. It makes it impractical as using a mouse is much master. With ↑/↓ behaves properly it would not be a case.
