I posted and corrected this in ff v65, and now I am using v81.0 and the problem is back. In about:config the value is set to 2 as it should be, but it still functions and interferes with AutoHotkey. Windows 10 access keys are disabled at the registry level. The key combination is "Ctrl+Sift+Z" which on my en-US desktop opens the Web Developer.

Try "0" -maybe a default.

What is permissions.default.shortcuts supposed to do?

It is supposed to block the Firefox shortcut key assignments.

No. But I am familiar with this and related bug reports. I had the same problem then, since corrected. Resetting the Backspace to it's normal function is done by user_pref("browser.backspace_action", 2);

user_pref("permissions.default.shortcuts", 2); is supposed to disable the built in macros

Finally managed to observe the following repeatedly. In my user.js the following preferences are defined as
Code: Select all
user_pref("browser.backspace_action", 2); and
user_pref("permissions.default.shortcuts", 2);

On first time after opening of the browser, either of these settings fail and revert to their default behaviour. Afterwards, the preferences behave according to their settings.
Is it possible to eliminate this issue by setting these preferences earlier in firefox.cfg? Are the preferences interchangeable?

Thanks for the link. Is this a recently introduced feature to restructure the previous way of setting preferences?

My using preferences is to eliminate the time consuming resets I must constantly monitor and perform, due to Mozilla's interference while I work. I want to control the settings of the Options between application updates. Unchangeable settings embedded in the executable don't interfere with my work because they don't change.

Settings that interfere with my work are keyboard access keys, regional, language, and spellcheck related.
