User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:20.0) Gecko/20.0 Firefox/20.0
Build ID: 20121126030823

Steps to reproduce:

Type something in the URL bar, and attempt to use Ctrl+P and Ctrl+N to navigate among the results.


Actual results:

The cursor jumps to the beginning/end of the line.


Expected results:

In all other browsers, Ctrl+P/N navigates between results like the up/down arrow keys do. In general, they function as up and down in most contexts, including firefox text inputs.

This is still true in Firefox 57. Quite annoying for power users of the developer edition.

Shouldn't this be an easy fix? Is there something I'm missing? I would like to try to fix this myself, but compiling firefox locally is very very daunting.
