Issue #3309 duplicate

Keyboard shortcuts are broken

Jérôme Berger
created an issue

I am used to hitting the '/' key to search in a web page. When I do it in bitbucket, it shows an "help" window describing the site-specific shortcuts. There are two issues with this:

  1. According to this same help window, the '/' key should focus the site search field, not bring up the help (maybe the fact that I have an AZERTY keyboard and need to press shift in order to make a '/' has something to do with this);

  2. There should be a way to configure the bitbucket shortcuts, or at least disable them so that they won't conflict with my usual browser shortcuts. Of course, I can disable the shortcuts by disabling javascript on bitbucket, but this also disables some useful features (like the preview below the text area I'm typing into right now).

    I don't see why this is a duplicate, #3311 is about the search key combination overloading the Firefox default with it's own search, this is about the search key combination not focusing the search but showing the help screen.
