Repeated pressing cursor down or up key doesn't always scroll the page

Contributor

I often use cursor down or up when scrolling websites. I have noticed, since day one, in each Edge version, that the key press doesn't seem to register each time. Sometimes I can press cursor down on my keyboard each 0.5 second and scroll nicely through a very long site, but sometimes it's as if only a second or third keypress is being registered as a scroll down.

 

Here's a video showing how it often looks like: https://i.imgur.com/7fLjg0P.mp4

In the video I press the "cursor down" key in regular intervals but the browser ignores some of the keypresses. Issue occurs on all tested PCs (3), no matter the Edge version.

Hi,
by cursor up/down keys, are you referring to the numpad keys arrows when the numlock button is off?

@HotCakeX - no, I meant the up/down arrow keys, not the numpad ones. I can't test the numpad because I don't have one ;)
