In firefox hitting Ctrl+K takes you to the search bar (all fine and good).

However in my webmail client (Zimbra) it pops open windows without the address/search bar. Hitting Ctrl+K there (muscle memory from Outlook Web Access) navigates immediately to - hitting back doesn't work from there (Zimbra's all screwed).

Is there anyway to disable Ctrl+K navigating to the search provider without changing the normal Ctrl+K to the search-bar behaviour when the search-bar is present?

Or better yet force it to actually pop up the search-bar - or highlight in my main browser window's search bar?
