Hi,

Often the ctrl + m (mute tab) shortcut gets in my way while using the browser as i use this shortcut in something else. I would like to know if it is possible to disable that.

Thanks. (Message written using Google Translate)

Chosen solution

If it is practicable to disable the shortcut for certain sites, open the Page Info window while on the site (ctl+i), go to the Permissions tab and set Override keyboard shortcuts to Allow.

If you need to disable the key binding generally, you need to create an autoconfig file.
