Search shortcut collides with firefox's default

Butbucket started using "/" as a hotkey for search box on the top of the page. This setting collides with the default "in-page" search available in various browsers.

Since the functionality is completely different: "/" in browsers searches on the current page, in bitbucket it searches the whole service, I'd like to see the default left alone. It looks like a regression to me. Can we get the search hotkey back?

    Bunch of other sites use the same shortcut for searching, GMail for instance. We'll probably implement disabling shortcuts altogether, but it won't be on a per-key basis.
