How do I disable keyboard shortcuts?

Postáilte

Some of the sites I visit allow me to format text with control characters (eg ctrl-b to bold the text). However, Firefox interrupts the control characters and opens the bookmark sidebar instead. How can I override this shortcut (and, perhaps, almost every shortcut)? Thank you, Ben

It happens on any contenteditable element.

For example: MDN Contenteditable

Select some text in the editor on that page and try to bold it using cmd+b OR ctrl+b and it will open the bookmarks sidebar.

I just want to be able to disable or turn off that shortcut, so those content editors work correctly.

Firefox 65 changed how key events on non-printing keys are sent to websites. Previously, a site would get a "keydown" and a "keypress", but starting in Firefox 65, it only got a "keydown".

CTRL+i also opens bookmarks toolbar (instead of making text italic). I tried installing Shortkeys (addon) and disabled CTRL+b and CTRL+i, but it doesn't work, firefox still intercepts the keypress and opens the effing bookmarks bar.
