Hey, You will have to use an extension to change the default keyboard shortcuts. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287036 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/shortkeys/

this extension seems to only allow adding new keyboard shortcuts. what if i want to disable a default one. specifically i want to disable Alt+Left from going back and Alt+Right from going forward. is this impossible with the current state of things ?

Implement "about:shortcuts" showing all shortcuts and allowing the editing of shortcuts

If you're running Windows I'd suggest installing AutoHotkey. Then run the program, follow the instructions on how to create a script file, and place the following code in the file:

$!Left::

   ifWinActive, ahk_exe firefox.exe
   {
       return 
   } else {
       Send !Left
       return
   }

$!Right::

   ifWinActive, ahk_exe firefox.exe
   {
       return 
   } else {
       Send !Right
       return
   }


Then save the file, run it, and place it in the Windows Startup folder. Alt+Left and Alt+Right should then be disabled permanently for Firefox.
