Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0
Build ID: 20171112125346

Steps to reproduce:

1. Click in the URL bar
2. Press control-E to move the cursor to the end (and deselect all text)
3. Press control-option-B to move back by one word


Actual results:

Nothing


Expected results:

Like every other text field on the Mac (including those in Firefox web content), it should move the cursor back by one word.

Also doesn't work, but should: control-option-F (forward one word)

The synonyms option-left-arrow and option-right-arrow do work here.

Interestingly, the shifted variants (control-option-shift-B and control-option-shift-F), to select by a word at a time, do also work in the URL bar.
