This is very annoying when you're used to navigate text fields and the address bar with Ctrl-a and Ctrl-e. The alternative is ⌘-Left and ⌘-Right, but I feel emacs shortcuts should either be supported or not, and not "sometimes". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open find bar (type something for illustration). 2. Go to address bar and type Ctrl-a.
I agree. But I'm not sure this is a bug of find toolbar or key event handling. Where is handling Ctrl-a on Mac when find toolbar doesn't have focus?
Would it be OK to just move "Highlight all" to Shift-Ctrl-A?
