You can get the "Key Config Extension" if you want to customize the key assignments: or "Customizable Shortcuts" at:

You can also go to about:config and add entries for "ui.key". See Customizing Mozilla for details, at -- the section titled "How Key Bindings Work in Mozilla" explains about XUL & XBL. It appears that the XUL bindings are stored in comm.jar and XBL bindings are in XML files like "bindings.xml".

Huh. Stuff like "bindings.xml"? But find -iname "*bind*" in my ~/.mozilla was one of the first things I tried... As to "Customizable Shortcuts", it's kinda broken. That's why I started looking for a way to do it manually... – Owen_R Oct 12 '13 at 6:52
Ah, you're in linux; some files are different. What version of FF? – Debra Oct 12 '13 at 6:55
Yeah, just wiped my old Vista and Windows 7 comps and installed Kubuntu a couple days ago. (So. Much. Nicer. :D ) Anyway, FF 24.0 – Owen_R Oct 12 '13 at 6:58
Hm, no `*.jar" files either... – Owen_R Oct 12 '13 at 7:00
The page link to "customizing html" (in my answer) contains a great deal of detail, including which features don't work as they're supposed to. And some of the keys can be changed as prefs, as shown on that page. – Debra Oct 12 '13 at 7:04
