It works as it should. When you click the blue ball, you get a list of 
categories. Choose one. Then the arrow up and down above and below the 
blue ball traverse through this category.
For example, if the category is "Search" and you have used a search 
already, then the arrows do a 'find previous' and 'find next'. And when 
the category is "Page", then the arrows do 'goto previous page' and 
'goto next page'.

Word 2010 has the same UI element at the same place. I don't know, 
whether former MS Office users will miss it. LO users know (or can 
know), that the same function is in the upper part of the navigator. The 
top, second from left item opens this category chooser.

I personally use it to quickly switch from search, which is 
automatically set by the new search bar, to the page up/down mode.

Kind regards
