When I pushed the right button of the mouse to choose the shortcut of "copy link", its shortcut changed from"A" to "L". I do not know why and when this change happened. It was "A" 3 hours ago.

As I use the left hand to push the keyboard and the right hand to move the mouse, it is very inconvenient. I appreciate it if you tell me how to change the setting.

It looks as though the change happened with version 88; you must have updated Firefox.

As 88 is the latest, I have to wait. Thanks.

Not sure how this change is supposed to improve UX. Right-handed users right-click with the right hand, then have to use the right hand again to click 'k'. Before, it was seamless - right-click, use left-hand to click 'a'. This same time of context menu change has happened before, ruining my keyboard shortcut flow for the close tabs function. Maybe Mozilla should just create an add-on/feature that allows users to customize their own menus instead changing the UI for the entire user base at once.
