Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I am on Meta, I can push the HOME button on my keyboard (like on other sites) to go to the top of the page.

However, when on any other site on Stack Exchange, this is not possible unless you click in the margin, which is not always visible/available when you resize the window.

Why is there this difference? Is there a workaround?

OS: Windows Vista

Browser: Internet Explorer 7 (limited to this browser by company policy)

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

It works for me on all pages on all sites (Windows XP + Chrome). What OS & browser are you running? – ChrisF Mar 24 '11 at 11:31
Edited the question with this info. – Yoh Mar 24 '11 at 11:40
use spacebar (down) and shift+spacebar (up) to scroll. I try to avoid use of mouse as much as possible and usually spacebar scrolling works on every site (not only stackexchange) – bestsss Dec 27 '11 at 12:08
Check to see if the sites that don't scroll have IE in compat view (perhaps because you commented, see… ) and if so, put it back to normal. One of the things compat mode does to me is mess up keyboard scrolling. – Kate Gregory Jan 26 '12 at 11:47

Problem seems solved now. I have no idea what made this problem occur in the first place. Also the workaround presented in comments by bestsss is usefull.
