Mark Mielke just posted that Ctrl+a does nothing in the url field on

To clarify what I'm after, I'm only talking about single-line
editboxes, not multi-line. I agree that having ctrl+a go to the
beginning of the line in multi-line text controls would be confusing
for windows users since they're used to it selecting everything in
text views. But it doesn't do that on single-line text controls, so
having ctrl+a and ctrl+e and home/end both work, always, on those
controls would please both crowds.
