Here's how you can turn off the "media keys" integration:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. More info on about:config: Configuration Editor for Firefox.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste mediakey and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

That might not work fully until you do a regular quit/restart of Firefox.

Does that work on yours?

We probably should add something about that to the new article: Control audio or video playback with your keyboard.
