Any way to change Page Up/Down amount?

Is there any way to change the amount that firefox scrolls when using the Page Up/Down keys? I would like there to be overlap (like IE has), which makes it easier to not end up with hidden text.

If Firefox doesn't support this natively, is anyone aware of any add-ons that give this functionality?

I don't use IE much now but if this helps...

In Firefox... hit the space bar once (while "not" in an edit/typing window) and the page will move down...shift + space bar and it will move up.

There may be people who come along to give you a better answer though.

Thank you for replying, but that doesn't really address my question. I want to change the amount by which the Page Up/Down keys move.

Try the Keyconfig extension with this code:
Code: Select all
window.content.document.getElementsByTagName('html')[0].scrollTop+=window.content.document.getElementsByTagName('html')[0].clientHeight-50;

Dickvl, that did the job perfectly. With the value (-50) changed to (-130), it matches IE exactly.

Out of curiosity, if I wanted to change the number of lines scrolled by the up/down arrows, would I use the same code? Or is there a better option?
