Change Access Keys in Windows Firefox 2

To avoid access keys collision with the browser's keyboard shortcuts, Firefox 2.0  added an additional modifier key: Alt+Shift

To revert to the old behavior as in Firefox 1.5.x proceed as following:

  1. type about:config in the address bar
  2. type ui in the filter bar
  3. double click on ui.key.contentAccess and change the value 4 (default value is 5).
