User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:7.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0
Build ID: 20110927153135

Steps to reproduce:

Using firefox on windows you have some pretty useful keyboard shortcuts:
   Ctrl+Shift+B = "Show all bookmarks" (Ctrl+Shift+O on linux)
   Ctrl+Shift+D = "Bookmark all tabs" (no equivalent on linux)
   Ctrl+n             = "Switch to the n-th tab" (Alt+n on linux)


Actual results:

These don't currently work under linux:
   Ctrl+Shift+B
   Ctrl+Shift+D
   Ctrl+n


Expected results:

   I know that Ctrl+Shift+[A-F] keyboard shortcuts may be reserved on GTK2 but for consistency reasons, I'd love to be able to use a single set of shortcuts on Firefox, irrespective on its platform (win or linux).

btw, I use KDE :)
