Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0
Build ID: 20160107040617

Steps to reproduce:

started firefox, opened a few tabs, pressed ctrl+1, ctrl+2, alt+1, alt+2

tried changing the various acceleator keys ui.key.* to 17


Actual results:

ctrl+number doesn't do anything
alt+number changes between tabs



Expected results:

since the default for ui.key.accelkey is 17, I expect ctrl to be the modifier for switching between tabs
(ctrl + n does open new tab, so it's partially recognized)

changing any ui.key.* values doesn't have any effect on this shortcut
