    Default Navigating via keyboard: scrolling message content

    Hi folks -

    Is there any way to scroll the content of an email message while keyboard navigating? I can scroll up and down in the list of messages, but once I see a message in the message pane, I can't scroll it without clicking on it first with them mouse. I see that there is a keyboard shortcut for ctrl-/ titled "Focus content pane", but as far as I can tell it does nothing when I click it. Interestingly, the / key on its own does work for selecting the search box.

    Anyway, is there any reasonable way I can use the keyboard to read mail that scrolls off the bottom of the screen without having to resort to the mouse to select the message?

    Thanks!

    Using the Spacebar should skip forward in scrolled messages in both message view and conversation view. Hope this helps.

    jjohnson -- spacebar does scroll in message view, but after pressing the return key to enter message view, I still need to click on the message to get it into focus before spacebar will work. Is there any way I can do this without having to engage the mouse?

    You're correct. In the individual message view, scrolling does not appear to work correctly. Filed bug is here: Bug 85115 ? Can't scroll messages in message view using keyboard
