Last night I was testing the settings on my firewall program which is Comodo. It alerted me to the fact that firefox was trying to access my keyboard. Why would that be? Can you please explain this to me. Thanks you are the best browser. Thanks again

Hello there,

I don't see anything malicious here, so there is nothing to worry about. Firefox uses keyboard shortcuts as accessibility features for various reasons i.e. select web content (copy and paste), zoom in or out, navigating through the website etc. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/accessibility-features-firefox-make-firefox-and-we

Hope this helps!
