up arrow history leads to first letter

Hi this is my first post, I am not sure how to search the forum for this particular problem.

When I hit the up arrow to repeat the previous command, the prompt goes to the first letter and does not go beyond the past the last letter. The work around for this is hit up arrow and hit "esc" and then "Shift+A" to go to the end of the command.

I used to able to go to the end of the line by hitting the up arrow. Someone said something about VI and VIM. I am not by any means an expert. Can anyone help?
