Changing Close Tab shortcut to Ctrl+X

more options

I really hate the fact that firefox uses Ctrl+W to close tabs and doesn't give us any option to change this behaviour. It should be Ctrl+X by default. How do I do this?

Hello,

You should be able to add that shortcut using this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/shortkeys/

This will not enable you to remove the existing shortcut, but it will let you add the new one as an additional shortcut.

Hope that fits your needs!
