Option-left/right (ctrl-left/right on other platforms) moves between words ;
Cmd-left/right moves between the start and the end of the line. That works ok in
textfields and in the composer, but /not/ in the location bar. Option-left works
ok, but option-right will always jump to the end of the line.

If this was by design, I haven't found it in pages like
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/ui/communicator/browser/keyboard/ . It seems
like option-right is treated as cmd-right by mistake.

Found in Mozilla 1.8a2 and Firefox 0.8.0+ (trunk), both on Mac OS X 10.2.8. I
haven't found a duplicate, so it might be Mac only. And Mac-users don't use the
keyboard shortcuts too much either :-)

This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state.

If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way.
If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.
