RESOLVED DUPLICATE of bug 190615

People

(Reporter: jearsh, Unassigned)

Details

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.9) Gecko/20071025 Firefox/2.0.0.9
Build Identifier: 

When at the address bar with any url, when the user presses Ctrl+Backspace it deletes the whole address instead of stopping at different characters such as:

[=?./&_]

It functions like this on Windows.  It is useful for changing parameters being passed to a script, or changing com to net or org.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select address bar.
2.Move the cursor to the end of the string
3.Hold Control, Press Backspace.
Actual Results:  
It deleted the entire address.

Expected Results:  
Stopped at a key character like an & (ampersand) or an = (equal sign) to change the value of a parameter being passed to the script.
The user agent may not be accurate.  I am accessing this from a Windows machine, not my laptop with a Linux-based OS.
Should be fixed on trunk (for Firefox 3) by the patch in bug 190615.
