This bug exists since version... On all next versions,,, When you press Home button, it type "H" instead to jump to begining and if you press End, it type "F" instead to jump to the end of line...
Dear Jolla, please fix it :)

Surprised those buttons even exist. Why not just use ctrl-a and ctrl-e instead?

Possible, but buttons are exist and should be fixed...

@attah: Because all screen sessions by default use ctra-a. ;)

@Piotr: that's why my muscle memory always type 'ctrl-a a' (which sends ctrl-a to the terminal inside the screen session) and I end up with an 'a' in the beginning of the row in all none-screen terminals 😁

@Mohjive I agree, but on a hardware keyboard. I'm not (that) used to onscreen keyboards. :)
