The following no work: - ctrl-w = kill word before cursor position - ctrl-a = move to beginning of line - ctrl-e = move to end of line - ctrl-u = kill from cursor position to bebinning of line - ctrl-k = kill to end of line - ctrl-d = kill character following cursor - ctrl-f = move cursor forward 1 character - ctrl-b = move cursor backward 1 character - ctrl-n = move cursor to next line - ctrl-p = move cursor to previous line (there are likely others) The first of these is the worst, since it closes the current tab or window; and I actually did this twice while completing this bug report. I know that other tickets exist on this one. The remainder is just bloody irritating. Anyone who interacts with a unix shell must be familiar with at least these and surely has been burned by or lost hair over the change in binding. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to google.com 2.enter a word in the search text area 3.hit ctrl-w to erase the word...and the window/tab goes away Think about how you'd like to put your fist through the screen. Actual Results: - ctrl-w = closes tab/window - ctrl-a = selects all of the text - ctrl-e = unknown - ctrl-u = opens the page source window - ctrl-k = unknown - ctrl-d = bookmark page - ctrl-f = find in page - ctrl-b = bookmarks - ctrl-n = new window - ctrl-p = print dialog
