For example, I'd love to be able to press ctrl-a to get to the beginning of a line in an input field and ctrl-k to delete that line, etc.

KeySnail also looks extremely interesting.

(In fact, after a cursory look at both that and Firemacs, I would say that KeySnail looks like the more comprehensive of the two by far.)

Firefox normally uses the GTK settings for key bindings. You can just turn on Emacs bindings there GTK-wide. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Emacs_Keybindings_%28Firefox%29#GNU.2FLinux
