    I wasn't sure where else to put this, but I have a question that has been bugging me for awhile. When I use gmail (within firefox) and I want to move the cursor to the end of the line (or the beginning) the keyboard shortcut (cmd+right/left arrow) is disabled. It doesn't work. Obviously the issue is with Gmail, but does anyone know of an add-on or an option within Gmail to get those type of keyboard shortcuts to work? It is kind of annoying to be forced to use the trackpad just to move the cursor.

    I haven't used the web interface to create or reply to e-mails, but have you tried the Home and End keys to move to either end of a line?

    Yep. I have that problem as well.
    Optn + arrow key works, but not CMD + arrow key.

    IF you have keyboard shortcuts turned on Optn 3 (#) doesn't work to delete messages either so I think there are a few problems with gmail on a Mac.

    CMD + arrow does work in Safari though. Strange.

    Yeah the option and arrows keys work, but they don't move the cursor to the end of the line. :-(

    Anyone know of a firefox add-on to circumvent this?
