I need to change some shortcuts from Ctrl+Smth to Super+Smth (e.g. I need to open new tab by Super+T). How can I do it in Firefox 65 (Ubuntu 18.10)? Don't find anything in about:config. Is there separate settings tab with list of shortcuts? And if no - where and how can I remap bindings (config files?).

For any O/S keyboard configuration is set by the O/S first.

Well. I've found a "solution": you can unpack browser/omni.ja and change chrome/browser/content/browser/browser.xul (and may be .xhtml too), then repack and replace.

But after each firefox upgrade you'll need to do it again. Can't find permanent solution with some kind of config in user's home directory.

Unless those functions are set by default it uses the O/S keyboard assignment and shortcuts. You should also post to the Linux site and ask for help on keyboard assignments as well.

No, it's not a Linux task. Most of firefox hotkeys are set by firefox, and I've wrote where they bindings exists. I need a simple method for customizing chrome/browser/content/browser/browser.xul, or other way to change firefox bindings (not system!). Repacking omni.ja is not a good way at all, there should be other easy solution for such simple and basic task.
