How to disable the hotkey that toggles the menu bar in Firefox
I use Firefox as my secondary browser and something that has been bothering me for some time now, is the fact that the
Alt-key toggles the menu bar.
This is an issue for me because I use the
Alt-key as my modifier-key for my window manager i3. Which means that I constantly toggle the menu bar by mistake. And while the menu bar is visible the keybindings for Vim Vixen doesn’t work.
The solution to the issue is actually rather easy. I found the solution on r/firefox on Reddit here. What you neede to do is to simply toggle a value in Firefox.
Copy and paste this link into your adress bar in Firefox:
Then set the value to
false by double-clicking on the string and you’re done.
