CTRL+Q Does respect browser.WarnOnQuit

I hate pressing CTRL+Q accidentally, and looking at the forums someone suggested to set the variable browser.warnOnQuit to true, I have it already in true, but pressing CTRL+Q closes firefox without warning.

I'm using firefox 31.0 for Ubuntu Cannonical (the one that ships in Ubuntu GNOME 14.04)

What should I do to disable CTRL+Q ? It should respect my browsers' setting of warning on quit, right?

Hi! Thanks for your answer :)

I'm aware of the extension, but what I am complaining about is the flag not being respected. It is cool that there's a solution using an extension, but that shouldn't be necessary.

Should I report a bug?
