Are you really using Firefox 3.5? If so, thne you first need to update to Firefox 17.0.1 IMMEDIATELY (3.5 is horribly slow, outdated, and VERY VERY Insecure). Update Firefox to the latest version

After updating, tell me what exact shortcut you are trying to change.

Right-click context menus are generated dynamically and have menu entries that depend on what kind of element you click.
If you would change such a access key then you would have to be very careful not to introduce some ambiguity.

I don't know if this extension can make such changes as I've never used it.
