Description of problem:
In all other browsers i have previously tried, a had been able to use
the arrow keys to scroll the text. This is a real usefull feature, as
using the mouse to scroll with the scrollbar can be a real pain for

In epiphany, those keys seem to move a marker, which makes scrolling
somwhat unpredictable...

1.Start epiphany
2.Try to scroll with the arrow buttons on the keyboard
Actual results:
Jumps wildly arround

Expected results:

with the F7 key.
