Ctrl + Right Arrow shortcut not working in developer tools


(DevTools :: Console, defect, P3, trivial)

66 Branch


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: mozilla, Unassigned)




The Ctrl + Right Arrow keyboard shortcut does not work in any Firefox console windows, including the Browser Console and Developer Tools Web Console. The Ctrl + Left Arrow keyboard shortcut works as expected.

To reproduce, open the developer tools web console and type "one two three" without pressing enter. Move the text cursor to the beginning of the text. Press Ctrl + Right Arrow on your keyboard.

The Ctrl + Right Arrow keyboard shortcut should move the text cursor by word, as is the operating system standard. While the Ctrl + Left Arrow keyboard shortcut does work properly and the Ctrl + Right Arrow keyboard shortcut works in every other context.

Hello Wesley, thanks for the report!
