How Do I Change/Disable Keyboard Shortcuts?

more options

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

Hi Viktyr, yes, at least on Windows, Ctrl+i recently changed from opening something else (maybe the Bookmarks Sidebar?) to opening the Page Info dialog.

When you say you are in an editor window, is this something built-in to Firefox or a website editor (code, email, etc)? Websites can intercept and re-purpose Ctrl+i the way they do with Ctrl+b, Ctrl+u, etc., but some of them don't use the most modern code for that and instead rely on obsolete proprietary behaviors that Firefox discontinued a while ago. If there is a particular site where you notice the problem, we might be able to suggest the best workaround.

P. S. Currently there is a link filter on this site that doesn't allow text(dot)text so you may need to add a space after each dot in the address if you want to post a link for the relevant page.

It's specifically on EN World, at enworld dot org, using Xenoforo software.

The RPG Pub, at rpgpub dot com also uses Xenoforo software and doesn't display this problem.

Also, I'm using Firefox 77.0.1 for Linux Mint.
