User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:54.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/54.0
Build ID: 20170628075643

Steps to reproduce:

C-l


Actual results:

Nothing


Expected results:

A dialog to apply a link to the selected text. This is the conventional shortcut for this action, and muscle memory suggests that this was the previous standard in Mozilla until it was changed to C-k

Yes, it was changed to CTRL+K as in most office software packages and the release notes say so:

The keyboard shortcut to insert hyperlinks into a compose window was changed from CTRL+L to CTRL+K to align with Office applications
