Allow us to disable "double click to move"
Double-clicking to move to the beginning or end of the cells is useful for some, but for others it drags our productivity down. Please allow us to toggle the option to navigate using double-click so the users who are adversely affected by it can turn it off.

Yes, please -- this is a feature that badly needs to be turned off by default. I would have voted sooner, but it's difficult to figure out at first what Excel's infuriating Jump Randomly To The Bottom Of The Spreadsheet behavior is called, or where to vote against it. The first few dozen times I triggered it, it seemed much more like flaky irreproducible behavior than a deliberate feature.
For the love of god, please kill this "feature". In over a decade of power-use of Excel, I've never used it. I don't know anyone who uses it. Other shortcuts are available. The interruption is incredibly aggravating. And turning off auto-fill in order to stop this behavior is absolutely not an option. Please, please kill it.

This is such an annoying "un-feature", can't believe it will be THAT hard to fix?! I use the drag and fill handles, so disabling that to get rid of this constant needless jumping around is, like someone said below, like cutting your legs so you don't have to buy shoes...
It's so frustrating when you try to double-click a cell to enter something in the middle of a huge spreadsheet only to realize you've double-clicked on or too close to the border and *boom* there you go out of your place into one of the edges... SO enfuriating and pointless this is!

This has been my least favorite bug in Excel for over 10 years. Every time a new versions comes out the first thing I check is did they fix the scroll to end of list bug and every time the answer has been no. Often I work with ling lists of data and I have to insert blank lines to limit the damage this bug can do, then I have to remove the blank lines when I am done. Please, Please, Please fix this so I can stop wasting my time trying to find my place after getting control stolen after my double click is a few mm off. Please fix this.

This would literally take you 5 minutes to fix and push out in an update. I know you don't think it's "important", but no one asked for this feature and whatever Excel Dev who thought this would be a good idea really needs to make it optional rather than mandatory. I'm seeing forum posts about this as far back as a year ago. This should not take that long to fix or make an optional "feature". Fix your software.
Disabling drag-to-fill just to disable this worthless scroll function is like cutting off your legs at the knee. You won't need to buy shoes anymore (something you don't do very often) but now you can't WALK (something you do ALL THE TIME).
PLEASE separate these two functions - I WANT drag to fill but I DO NOT WANT double-click cell border to scroll!
Microsoft please allow users to control the action triggered by double-click.
The least useful option is to jump to the end of the column and it should not be the default.
Repeatedly losing my place because I'm out of position by a pixel or two is a gross annoyance.
Somehow I've never been hit by this before, but the last couple of days have been very irritating because of this "feature" that can't be disabled.
This should be classified as a "bug" not "feature"
the MOST annoying 'feature' of Excel. I'd call myself a power user, but never ONCE have I used this feature. If I want to get to the end of a range, I'll use keyboard shortcuts such as CTRL + down
This is still super annoying. And no, I'm not going to log in to vote. Please fix this.

It is ridiculous that we have to vote on this. It's the most frustrating part about using Excel.
Why on earth would I want to go to the top or bottom of the sheet from double clicking? When I HAVE to double click to edit a cell.
However, drag and drop is a very useful feature. Please allow us to disable the double click whilst still continuing to use drag to copy and paste.

VERY ANNOYING! i use fill-handle often but the accidental double click too close to the cell border (especially when the cells are small) sends me sailing to the end of the table?!? Totally unacceptable.
Ditto what James A said. i'm not going to subscribe for whatever your dumb website requires me to subscribe to just to vote. Just please fix this. In Excel and Word.
James A commented
I'm stunned this is something we have to vote for! Please for the sake of productivity everywhere and users who just don't know what's happening when this occurs, make this toggle-able itself and default to off.
This is an annoying "feature". This should be a toggle on/off separate from the useful drag and fill function.
This should be a toggleable feature and should have been added years (decades?) ago

I agree with the comments below.
As mentioned in other comments there are two actions tied to one option
1. Double click corner for copy down
2. Double click cell edge to navigate in the direction of the edge (top edge goes up, bottom edge goes down, etc)
I frequently use #1 but have never intentionally used #2. Please separate these options so we can choose which actions we want turned on.
Please remove this annoying feature! Or at least enable us to disable it.
Annoying that this happens when I double click on the wrong pixel. I've never used this feature intentionally.
