Hi,

is there a way to change the start direction of shift+arrow left/right in the address bar when it suggests an address for completion? It's the other way around in chrome and I got very used to it over the past years. now since I switched to firefox recently it's annoying me somewhat that I can't use this shortcut which I used like 20+ times a day before.

Here is an example, I'm starting to type an Address and then after 3-4 letters starting to press shift+arrow left/right. In Chrome it moves from where I stopped typing (which makes more sense for me at least): https://screencloud.de/638c84d6e432c.gif In Firefox is starts from the end of the suggested URL (which is kinda useless in most cases): https://screencloud.de/638c8507d973f.gif

If there isn't an option for that I'd suggest adding one maybe, cause It's really helpful to quickly correct somehing without having to touch the mouse ot type the entire address out by hand if the suggested url is really long.

Thanks a lot in advance!

In Firefox you change the BIDI text direction in an input field/area via "Ctrl+Shift+X".
