Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144700
ctrl-e [end-of-line] command doesn't work in mozilla when text=numbers
Last modified: 2018-04-11 14:44:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Wen typing in numbers [whereever mozilla accepts text input] emacs keybindings
misbehave. Esp: Ctrl-E & Ctrl-K
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC3 & update mozilla from rawhide (or just install rawhide)
2. enable emacs style editing in by adding the following to ~/.gtkrc-2.0
gtk-key-theme-name = "Emacs"
3. start up mozilla
4. Now get to some 'editable' area [Ctrl-L to type in a URL will do]
5. Now type in just numbers - say '123'
Arrow -> works
Ctrl-E doesn't work
Ctrl-K kills 'char' instead of 'line'
Moving the 'cursor' to the end of the line with 'mouse' doesn't work
Ctrl-E (end of line) should work
Ctrl-k (kill line) should work
moving Mouse pointer to end of line should work
This is probably gtk bug - but I'm filing against mozilla - as I notice this
here. I see the same issue with 'firefox'
Just tried gtk2-2.6.1-1 update in rawhide - still the same behavior.
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates,
which may have resolved this issue, and Mozilla itself was removed from the
latest Fedora Core/RHEL distributions. Users who have experienced this problem
are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of the equivalent
package (Firefox, Thunderbird, etc.) available. Therefore closing this bug as
If you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, please reopen this bug
with an additional information.
I hadn't looked at this issue in a [long] while.
Looks like I had to follow instructions from:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme "Emacs"
