I discovered that everybody judges how easy STR are on the amount of text. Here's simplified text

>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 48, 32bit, ID 20160324030447
STR:
1. Type something in <textarea>
2. _Click_ before the 1st letter to move caret there
3. Press Ctrl+Shift+Home

Actual Result:   caret disappears, because empty string is selected.
Expected Result: caret shouldn't disappear = Empty string shouldn't be selected.
