When focus is in a forms text field like the one I'm typing to now (no matter if single- oder multiline), Ctrl-A moves the cursor to the beginning of the current line instead of selecting all text in the field. The "Select All" menu entry selects all text in the field, so the selection basically works, but Ctrl-A is misinterpreted. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter text in a form text field 2. Hit Ctrl-A 3. Actual Results: Cursor is at beginning of line, no text selected. Expected Results: All text should have been selected.
P.S.: Same problem for the URL field and all dialog text fields...
duplicate of bug 72352 / bug 257405; picking the latter. in 1.7.4 or .5 (and 1.8) mozilla should behave like you want it to. (unless you set the gtk pref to use emacs keybindings) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 257405 ***
