I need developer tools, for some tasks. F12 shortcut is fine. I have ubuntu linux, CTRL+SHIFT+C is used for copy from terminal. I want copy something from firefox to terminal. Every time I press CTRL+SHIFT+C developer tools appear instead of coping text. Pressing CTRL+SHIFT+C again does not close developer tools. So need to press F12. Select text one more a press CTRL+C. Is it possible to disable CTRL+SHIFT+C shortcut? Is there any fork with this shortcut disabled?

That is not possible, the only way would be to disable the developer tools entirely (devtools.policy.disabled). You will have to get used to using "Ctrl+C" in Firefox to copy like is used in a lot of other applications (I need to remember to use the Shift key in the terminal).
