Cocoa Keybindings

Put the following lines in ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict:

{
    /* home */
    "UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfLine:";
    "$UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfLineAndModifySelection:";

    /* end */
    "UF72B"  = "moveToEndOfLine:";
    "$UF72B" = "moveToEndOfLineAndModifySelection:";

    /* page up */
    "UF72C"  = "pageUp:";
    "$UF72C" = "pageUpAndModifySelection:";

    /* page down */
    "UF72D"  = "pageDown:";
    "$UF72D" = "pageDownAndModifySelection:";
}

Firefox

Install the following Firefox extension.

Textmate

I strongly recommend to Textmate users to disable the “Smooth Scrolling” option in System Preferences->Appearance->Use smooth scrolling. This option cause a strange behaviour with Page Up/Down on Textmate.

References

Update: Added suggestion to disable “Smooth Scrolling” for Textmate users.
