Firefox doesn't follow macOS forward/back localization convention

I have a Macbook with a Finnish keyboard layout.

Safari, Chrome and Edge, by default, support command+ö and command+ä for going back and forward in history. This is because Finnish/Swedish (they're the same) keyboard layout doesn't have [ or ] available.

While command + back arrow and command + forward arrow still work, those are useless as they get disabled when a text field is focused.

I tried to work around this with an extension (shortkeys), but even they don't support using umlauts for shortcuts.

I'm trying to adopt Firefox but I can't unless this gets fixed.

Thank you.
