Gmail compose - command left/right still broken (Mac)

This question was asked previously , and was marked solved, but was never really solved.

In the 'Compose mail' window of GMail the shortcut Command-left arrow or Command-right arrow to jump to respectively beginning or end of a line, is not working. It works fine in Chrome, and Home/End work fine in Windows, but I'd rather stick to Firefox on my Mac.

A solution was proposed on the link above to remap those key combinations to Ctrl-A/Ctrl-E using other software, but these solutions are overkill, and still do not let you highlight to the beginning or end of the line using Cmd-Shift-Left/right.

Can someone at Mozilla or Google please comment?
