Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2
Firefox 10.0 and 9.0.1

What did you do?
1. Put this in an html file: <html><body><textarea></textarea></body></html>
(Alternative: compose a message in gmail.)
2. Open it.
3. Type a few words
4. Try to go to the beginning of the line using cmd+left.
5. Try to go to the end of the line using cmd+right.

What happened?
Cursor does not move. Nothing happens.

What should have happened?
4. Cursor should move to the beginning of the line (as it does in all mac text editors, Safari, and Google Chrome).
5. Cursor should move to the end of the line (ditto ^^).

I thought I should open a new bug since no other bugs seem to mention the textarea element as being part of the problem.

Reproducible for me on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:13.0a1) Gecko/20120214 Firefox/13.0a1

I've composed a new mail in gmail and cmd+left/right doesn't work. This is working fine in Google Chrome.

Setting resolution to NEW.
