Spawned off from bug 299417 comment 36, by Uri Bernstein:

On Mac native apps, arrow-up and arrow-down actually move the caret a line up
or down, starting from the beginning of the selection (regardless of the
"direction" of the selection). Personally I'm OK with the behavior
(re)introduced by the patch, but while we're at it we might want to go for
better compatibility.

This does not work (i.e., works reversely) for RTL text. However, this also
happens in Safari and native OS X apps, so we might want to keep it for now in
order to be bugwards-compatible.
