Opera scrolls a complete page with PgUp/Down. You are right about Firefox, but
it's about 90%.
I guess you have to ask; should it be consistent with some (but not all)
browsers, or consistent with the rest of mythfrontend where PgUp/PgDown moves
a full 'page' in lists. I'm not voicing an opinion on how it should work, but
laying out some of the facts and possible considerations.
