17.10 and now cannot use the
<alt> shortcuts in firefox anymore. Pressing
<alt> and releasing it opens the firefox menu, but pressing for example
<alt>Left does not go back the history and firefox looses focus.
I have been looking through many posts that seem to be related:
removed the HUD launch from unity from it (though in unity it used to work properly)
tried to remove the
<alt>overlayKey, after looking at the conflict described https://github.com/lestcape/Gnome-Global-AppMenu/issues/51
tried to disable the menu bar toggle as in http://bsriram.info/2015/04/07/disable-menu-bar-toggle-in-firefox/, but that didn't seem to work.
I don't know if any of these is actually related, but I really want my
<alt> shortcuts back in firefox.
