Since an update about two weeks ago, every time I press alt-s the search/address bar is expanded. This is annoying, because we use this key combination to save forms of a web-application (our ERP). I didn't find an option to disable this behaviour. A web-search did not help. I found some suggestions, but none of them worked (eg. old discussions here: or here:

Any Ideas?

OS: Win10 64bit FX: 78.3.1esr (64-Bit)

Thanks for your Help.

Alt+S is used in the German Firefox version because Alt+D is used for the Datei menu. You would normally use an Alt + Shift combination (Alt+Shift+S) as access key on a web page.


Alt + Shift + S is not working for our Webapplication. I wish to have the old behaviour back but I can't figure out how to do.


This is very frustrating. So I have to tell our users to switch to Edge, since there is no possibility to solve this behavior within FF.
