The Ubuntu upgrade for Firefox to version 12.0+build1-0ubuntu0.11.04.1 broke the Ctrl+W and Ctrl+U keybindings in all my edit controls.
Other people asking for "Emacs editor controls" have found Firemacs useful -- but Firemacs does not provide a
kill-line field to bind with. Customize Shortcuts is often recommended as another approach, but it too does not provide
kill-line commands in its settings window.
I'm running Natty (11.04) but I have a suspicion it has more to do with Firefox than with the specific distribution.
How do I get my
^U keybindings back?
I have made a fresh install of Precise (12.04) -- while keeping my home directory's contents -- and Firefox 12.0+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 also demonstrates this problem.
