Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

Firefox's keyboard navigation gets all screwy on pages with embedded
Flash videos (FLV files). Scrolling with the Up and Down arrow keys on
the keyboard works until a Flash video file is displayed and then
scrolling halts. If you use the mouse to drag the main scroll bar on the
side down a bit, keyboard scrolling starts working again. I first
noticed this bug in Feisty, but it's still effecting the newest Firefox
package in Gutsy.

It's a real pain when scrolling through a page like Google Reader, where
there might be a dozen embedded videos in various blog posts.
