Just refreshed a page by hitting ctrl + r twice, which bypasses safety net, and lost my whole draft for post I wanted to make. Is there a way to disable this "convenient feature" so this doesn't ruin my day further?

I wanted to make a lengthy post on a website today, but I accidentally hit CTRL + R twice which bypassed the "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave — information you’ve entered may not be saved." safety net. Is there a way to deliberately disable any and all refresh shortcuts and buttons when a safety net shows up, so my buttery fingers don't ruin my day to it's absolute maximum?

I want safety nets to be deliberately annoying.

Sorry, didn't check the spelling for convenient. Made the post in a haste.

You can find "Edit this question" under the "Question Tools" menu in the sidebar (you may have to scroll to the top). For a reply, "Edit this post" is in the three-dot menu next to a reply.

You can look on the Add-ons website for a suitable extension to auto save form data.

You can possibly use an autoconfig.cfg file to disable some key sequences.
