    Whenever I'm on iGoogle viewing my RSS feeds and and type terms for a search, as soon as I hit the spacebar, the browser page's down. My cursor is still in the search box but I can't see it anymore. Is there a way to turn off the keyboard shortcut for Safari? I don't see it in the keyboard preferences.

    Hmm...that's not proper behavior as long as the cursor is in the text box, as it obviously is if you're typing there. Do you have any plug-ins installed that might be interfering with things?

    It's a real shortcut, but how do I turn it off? Honestly, who uses a spacebar to scroll down?!
