Now that there's a cursor in View Source, Home and End should take me to the start or end of the current line, respectively. Currently they take me to the start or end of the document.
I don't think we'd block the 1.0 release on a view source keyboard issue. feel free to request approval if a reviewed patch materializes.

Mozilla Help, Keyboard Shortcuts, says: "Homekey" = "Go to Top of Page" This shortcut does not appear to work. Pressing "Home" does nothing.
email@example.com: please be nice and indicate what browser you're using (complete useragent), also if you're using a usb keyboard or a laptop keyboard it might be a good idea to indicate the make and model.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041103 Firefox/1.0RC2 Home and End works as help says And since there is no cursor, this is ok for me
(In reply to comment #4) > And since there is no cursor, this is ok for me You're right. The cursor only appears after successfully searching for text. Then the arrows move the cursor, whereas before searching they scrolled the page.
Also CntlCmd+Home does not take browser to 'Top of Page' I searched the HelpGuide and it does not show the keyboard shortcut CntlCmd+Home as being assigned to anything. To be consistent with other Microsoft Office and IE functions, it would seem logical to also assign this key sequence to the appropriate action in FireFox. CntlCmd+End does however work correctly and goes to 'Bottom of Page' -John
Two issues: 1) According to Help pages, HOME key is supposed to display the Top of page, End key to display the bottom of page. This is inconsistent with Windows convention where Home key moves the cursor to the beginning of line, End key to the end of line. Ctrl-Home is supposed to display the top of the page, Ctrl-End to the bottom of the page. 2) With Windows XP SP1, Home key does not work like it is described in Help pages. It does not always display the top of the page. e.g. Try this page with the Home and End keys: http://www.mozilla.org/wishlist-faq.html You'll notice that the cursor is stuck at the bottom of the page.
This behavior is inconsistent when holding Shift to select text; the Shift+Home and Shift+End keys extend the selection to the start, resp. end of the line, while Shift+PageUp and Shift+PageDown are ignored.
Home and End keys do function properly. It's just that the focus is set outside the content area when View Source is displayed. Anybody objects morphing this bug into "give the content area focus on View Source load"?
Just tested this on branch, and it indeed was a problem in 1.0. This is fixed on trunk though, marking WFM. The bug mentioned in comment 9 is separate. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050325 Firefox/1.0+

Just a note, you have to actually click the content area first and make the caret visible before hitting home or end in order for this to work.
