Awkward "Quick Find within link-text only" shortcut placement on AZERTY keyboards
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0 Build ID: 20171226083017 Steps to reproduce: - Use a keyboard with an AZERTY layout (French). See attached file. - Make sure Caps lock is deactivated and your cursor is not in a text input. - Press 4 (on the row under function keys, not on the number pad). Note: that row does not work the same way as the one on QWERTY layouts; you have to toggle Caps lock on to write numbers with it (instead of toggling it off). Actual results: The quick-find bar appears and the key press is not registered by the web page. The web page also loses focus and does not register the following key presses. Expected results: This shortcut should be bound to another key on this keyboard layout since this row of numbers is widely used in games and web apps. Right now the only solution is to keep Caps lock on as extensions does not allow to rebound default keyboard shortcuts.
