Please provide a native way to change the behaviour of Ctrl-W. I tend to switch between aZerty and qWerty keyboard layouts, as a result I sometimes hit ctrl-W when I would like to ctrl-Z some change. As a result I tend to lose some work when the tab I'm working in closes. It would be nice to be able to rebind some of the default key combinations, or at least disable them.

I found a method description that edits the omni.ja file, but also that this method is unsupported. Moreover, running ubuntu kind of rules this out as an option, as canonical has ruled that firefox is to be installed via snap, in a read-only data store.

You can disable "Ctrl+W" via the autoconfig.cfg file.

Thank you for your reply, I had already found this.

Quoted from your second link:

"To use Autoconfig, place two files into the Firefox installation directory." " on Windows and Linux, they go into the same directory where Firefox is installed"

As my firefox installation is on a read-only filesystem, this solution cannot work for me. The location of this file is hard-coded, I would say rightfully so, therefore this is a dead-end for me.

Could someone provide a rationale for not making hotkeys configurable natively, from the ui? I believe this has been requested repeatedly over the years.

Thanks.

You can consider Firefox from the official Mozilla server if you currently use the Flatpak/Snap version with limitations or a version from the repositories of your Linux distro.
