Bold Text + Bookmark Manager Keyboard Shortcuts

Hey Folks,

The CTRL+ B shortcut often used to Bold text (literally everywhere) opens Firefox's Bookmark Manager side bar and sometimes formats text in the browser.

Does anyone know how to disable the Bookmark manager and/or resign this classic shortcut to text formatting only? The only option I found in the Browser menu 'Tools> Page Info> Permissions > Override keyboard shortcuts' does not offer a meaningful solution. I cannot imagine this most basic shortcut is not available for Firefox, I must be overlooking something.

I use this particular formatting shortcut quite often to create/modify browser page content for my job and would like to avoid using another web browser.

Thanks for your help!
