    Just tested this with my FF19 and all worked as expected. Pages
    scrolled to proper place with SPACEBAR and clicking mouse in slider
    control. Oddly enough, although I can't quickly see anything out of the
    ordinary, *your* page completely bogged down FF19 to damn near unusable.
    Severe lag/unresponsiveness. Even leaving/coming back to that tab was
    sluggish. Other tabs were unaffected. My res for that screen is 1680 x
    1050. *Your* site was *not* sluggish in my GC27 where it also worked as
    expected. Weirdly, *your* site was slightly sluggish/jerkish but usable
    in Thunderbrowse (Mozilla) but the screen scrolling was off. Again, this
    was a much smaller viewing area (in Thunderbird) than full screen as above.

    p.s. The pageup/down keys did not work here at all (in either browser)
    but maybe it's something local.
