Forum not processing keyboard shortcuts properly

I'm experiencing issues with standard Windows keyboard shortcuts on this new "Vanilla" forum software, for example:
  • Ctrl + Left Arrow: should move my cursor left by 1 word
  • Shift + Ctrl + Left Arrow: should move my cursor and extend the current highlighted selection left by 1 word
The same problem appears with the Right Arrow key as well - now, it does work in this "new thread" box, but not when I reply to a post on other boards, e.g., "Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking" to name just one.

    Can’t offer a solution, but can understand.

    When keyboard shortcuts don’t work on a website it just totally stops you in your tracks. 

    would've . . . could've . . . should've . . .

    There's definitely no 'a' in 'definitely'.
