Space bar reloads page…



  • Scrolling the page with the Space bar will reload the page once it hits bottom. It doesn't happen on every site, but these two reload even in a new private window. Its an odd behavior that I don't want, and I can't find a setting for.

  • Confirmed on Reddit, not on the other site.



  • Nothing happens here on reddit, the other link works as expected (fast forward is triggered when the spacebar is pushed at the end of the page)



  • Well I get fast forward (to next page) on both examples.
    Looks like something strange is going on.



  • I'm not familiar with the Fast-forward feature. Is that an Opera thing?
    What I experience is, it goes through any pagination on the page, then goes through what looks to be my site history. Neither FF or Chrome do this. I don't see a setting for it either. I guess that's another one for the list.

    Yes. You will see a button on the Reddit page to load more items. Pressing the space bar engages FF and loads the next page of posts. It's not actually reloading the same page.

    I still cannot get this to happen on news.ycombinator.com but that has a similar more.. button at bottom left, which may be triggering the page reload.

    Fast Forward is a much loved and useful feature on those long forum threads with many pages. In old Opera, there's a user configurable fastforward.ini file that can be tweaked to trigger on different links.

    I can see the utility of it. I would use if I could also use 'shift space' to go back to the top of the page. Sometimes, I find fast-forward has kicked in moved me to the next page, before I can hit the Shift key to go back to the top of the previous page.
