When I launch
tmux from the terminal, and attempt to move the cursor between words on one terminal line, the shortcuts that work in a default terminal don't appear to apply. e.g. esc + b does move the cursor one word back(albeit with a terminal bell) but esc + f doesn't move it one word forward. Ctrl + a doesn't move the cursor to the beginning of the line, neither does Ctrl + e to the end of the line and so on. I tried the equivalent of Home i.e. fn+← but that capitalizes the next letter and the equivalent for End which is fn+→ capitalizes the entire word and moves to the next word. I don't even get the recursive search on trying Ctrl + r.
