From the very start, for the last 25+ years, Right Click a link, and hit the letter W to open the link in a new window... Suddenly, with 88 Update, it is now the letter D. (while everything else in Windows is still W)

How do I get it back to [W] (Industry Standard is W)

Why did Mozilla change the letter to D?

I don't mind having to train myself to use D instead of W... I do mind that everything else still uses W, so I have to train myself to only use D in Firefox.

"View Image" => "Open Image in New Tab" (I)
"Open Link in New Container Tab" => Open Link in New Container (B->W)
"Open Link in New Window" (W->D)
"Bookmark This Link" => "Bookmark Link" (L->B)
"Copy Link Location" => "Copy Link" (A->L)
