Firefox 64 changed the URL completion mapping on macOS from Command+Enter to Control+Enter, to match the mapping across all operating systems. I want to change the mapping back to Command+Enter on my Mac and I am unable to find the setting in about:config to change it. Can you tell me if there's a way to change it back?
