How to make Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down arrows select text by paragraphs?

I work with text a lot in the browser. In Chrome, I can select a piece of text, then press Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down arrow to select paragraphs above or below the selected text. Also in Chrome, I can press Ctrl+up/down arrow to move the text cursor one paragraph above or one paragraph below when I type. But in FireFox, the combination ctrl+up/down arrow duplicates home and end. Tell me how can I assign actions to these keyboard shortcuts to work with paragraphs?

I think an add-on would be needed for this, but after searching around a bit, I didn't find one.

Maybe there's an open source editor which already has the code needed to build one, otherwise, it could be a bit of a project...

I do not understand the source code of FireFox and cannot change it.


Sorry, what I meant was, maybe someone can create an add-on using code from an open source text editor (or developing it themselves).

You can submit suggestions for new Firefox features on the "Ideas" site at but if someone can create an add-on, that would be faster.
