i don't see a problem with shift-click.
if i click frame 1 of a 1 frame timeline and then scroll to frame 700 and shift-click frame 700 i select frames 1 to 700.
If there are no keyframes in between, you can double-click the span in the timeline. Or, like kglad says, shift-click does work once you scroll to where you want to be (at least in CS 5.5--later versions have so many bugs I am not yet convinced).
I can shift click on all of the frames, but if I have edit multiple frames selected, only the frames that are selected within the range from above can be moved. Selecting all of the frames with shift click does not expand the Bracket Thing from above, and only the frames that fall within the bracketed range end up being moved. I would like to move images in a png sequence, so every frame is a keyframe.

That's a different kettle of fish from what you asked. IMO, editing multiple frames is a horrible experience and very buggy.
Here are some things that help (marginally) for me.
- Use the set marker range button (the brackets with the dot in the middle). I usually select a layer that spans the whole timeline, then select "marker range all." Then I'll select the layer(s) with the items on it I need to edit.
- Sometimes you need to move the frames you want to edit to their own layer(s) for this to work properly, then move them back when you are finished.
- Sometimes you need to go through the cycle of marker range all>select your layer more than once to get the desired result.
- It helps to look at the properties panel to see if the selection is more than one object, because sometimes everything looks right, but you still only have one frame selected for editing. This isn't a guarantee.
- You can use the history panel to roll back multiple steps if it doesn't work as expected, or save before you start and don't save your changes.
