keyboard shortcut for Open Link in New Window
Why in the world did Mozilla change the keyboard shortcut for Open Link in New Window from the standard ctrl-W to ctrl-D? This's been the standard on all different applications for years and years--since time immemorial! What were they thinking?!!
(Do they hate standardization? Do they wanna make people's lives difficult?)

W was taken for a different menu item, which is related to the Container tabs feature (Multi-Account Containers).
There is a somewhat complicated -- unofficial, community-supported -- way to modify access keys on menus, involving a startup script. I don't know whether you want to look into that, but I have a page on startup (userChrome.js) scripts here:
and a script for this change here:
That has four changes:
- Change Copy Link back to Copy Link Location
- Change Copy Email Address back to Copy Email Address
- Change Open Link in New Window back to Open Link in New Window
- Change Open Link in New Container Tab to Open Link in New Container Tab
Just to clarify, I was referring to the key you can press after you right-click a link. I don't use the Ctrl key. Are you referring to something different?
