Able to reproduce: Clicking in there and pressing left or right makes the caret hit an invisible wall at either parenthesis.

Not able to reproduce: Double clicking on the text and then pressing (left or) right makes it scroll into the bottom two paragraphs.

Does the issue still occur if you start Firefox in Safe Mode?

How about with a new, empty profile?
Component: Keyboard Navigation → Untriaged
Bug persists when in Safe Mode and when using a clean profile.
Component: Untriaged → Editor
Product: Firefox → Core
QA Contact: untriaged → editor
I can't reproduce either of the two problems on the latest Nightly.
