How can I prevent ctrl+q from closing the browser?

Posted

When I click ctrl+q by mistake, the browser window with all its tabs is closed immediately, with no warning. This has already made me lose data. is there a way to disable this keyboard shortcut?

Note that there is also a checkbox in "Options/Preferences -> General -> Startup" for the fist pref.
