I've installed Double Command on my Mac to make the Home and End keys do something useful (eg: behave as they do in Windows/Linux), and this is working fine across the system. The problem is that when writing a message in Gmail, these keys don't work. Even the built-in Cmd + Left and Cmd + Right key combos don't do anything.

Is this a known issue, or have I done something strange to my settings?

I have the same problem on Linux and found a related question on Google's support forum.

This didn't work for me, but maybe it may work for you:

The solution is Ctrl + E and Ctrl + A on your Mac keyboard.
