Change "Add Task" (CTRL+Q) shortcut

Can you change the "Add Task" shortcut? CTRL+Q quits Firefox.

Hello Francisco,

please tell me:
- Which version of Firefox are you using?
- Do you use any plugins in Firefox?
- What keyboard layout do you use (which language)?

I can't reproduce this issue in Firefox (15.0.1) and we've never had any report that Ctrl+Q is used to quit Firefox so far.


Best regards,
David

Hello David,

I'm using Firefox 15.0.1 on an ArchLinux and my keyboard layout is pt-br/ABNT2.

Before posting this proposal, I googled around to check if it was something specific to my system configuration. I even found an extension to disable the CTRL+Q shortcut: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disable-ctrl-q-shortcut/

My guess is it might be an OS specific shortcut. Reading the comments on the extension page, it suggests the CTRL+Q is the default exit shortcut on many desktop enviroments, except Windows.

Well, I might just install that extension, but it would be nice to have an additional shortcut for the "Add Task" action.
