When I hit the down (arrow) key, the browser jumps to the bottom of the webpage instead of scrolling down gradually. And Up arrow does nothing. :\

Caret Browsing is Not the default action as the down key does well scrolls down like one would expect.

Also this is a ancient thread from April 2007 so locking. Use the Advanced forum search and not the Google site search box to get current threads first.
(*.mozillaZine.org is not Mozilla!)
The Complaint Department at Mozilla (current complaints) (<It is not a real complaint site but for jokes/testing of bugzilla).
The Complaint department link is borked until unknown time.
