When importing a citation downloaded from the web in the form of a .bib file, JabRef adds and floats it as a marked entry to the very top of the references list. To reach the top one has to press PgUp several times / use the mouse which is a minor annoyance.

Keyboard users might appreciate if the Home/End keys jump to the Top/Bottom of the list a la other applications with such long lists (e.g. Foobar2000 and other such media players) for a better user experience.

PS: Additional improvements would be if the pressing the menu key could substitute as right-click for the highlighted entry.

    Hi Imad,

    have you tried using Ctrl+Home Ctrl+End?

    Thanks Igor. I was not aware of this. This is just what I required.
