In Mozilla, this keyboard shortcut does nothing. The problem applies to both single-line and multi-line textareas (as well as to the URL Bar) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Type a few words in a textarea widget (such as the Additional Comments field of this bug) 2. Press CTRL+Shift+Backspace. Actual Results: Nothing happens. Expected Results: Each press should delete the word "behind" the caret (compare Mozilla with Internet Explorer to get a general idea of how this is implemented in Windows.) Similar to my request in Bug 194860, if this keyboard shortcut doesn't collide with other shortcuts, please implement it for other platforms as well. Prog.
Summary: CTRL+Shift+Backspace should delete a single word at a time → CTRL+Shift+Backspace should delete the previous word
Update: It seems that Bug 98546 fixed most of this issue by providing the same functionality via CTRL+Backspace. I still think that we should also provide support for CTRL+Shift+Backspace (which works in IE and other Windows applications). Prog.
Severity: normal → minor
-> Invalid Ctrl+Shift+Delete is an undefined windows behaviour. Shift is used to Select. Ctrl is used to Group. So gow do you Select a group and delete it,´. Answer you wouldn't you just Delete a group. I.e use Ctrl+backspace. Which is implemented. Try Ctrl+Shift+bakspace in word it does nothing, yet Ctrl+Backspace does.
