Just upgraded 100 → 103 : how to disable <Ctrl><W> now ?
Until FF100, I used to disable <Ctrl><W> (close tab) by modifying browser/omni.ja, commenting the following line out in chrome/browser/content/browser/browser.xhtml :
<key id="key_close" data-l10n-id="close-shortcut" command="cmd_close" modifiers="accel" reserved="true"/>
It worked until FF100, but doesn't work anymore in FF103 : commenting that line out seems to have no effect on <Ctrl><W>.
Does anybody know why ? Or does anybody know a way to disable <Ctrl><W> ?
Background : on French keyboards, the <W> key is right next to <X>, so when I try to do a cut/paste (<Ctrl><X> → <Ctrl><V>) I sometimes end up doing <Ctrl><W> by mistake, thus closing the tab. Re-opening the tab doesn't always do the trick, sometimes the latest work is lost.
You could use autoconfig. The second link is close to what you want.Read this answer in context 👍 1

Many thanks, it worked !
Still, I think there should be an easier way to disable some of those shortcuts, not everyone is used to mess with js scripts. <Ctrl><W> can be quite annoying on some keyboards, I lost some text in the past, and reopening the closed tab doesn't always get everything back.
