Many websites or webapps(for example twitter website) hijack the keyboard strokes as keyboard shortcuts in their web page. And in many cases some of the shortcuts conflict with the system-based keyboard shortcuts.

Since firefox enable user to "disable javascript to hijack context menu" at:
Tools/Options/Content/Enable Javascript Advanced/Disable or replace context menus

Why don't you add the feature to "disable javascript to hijack keyboard shortcuts"? Just a checkbox at:
Tools/Options/Content/Enable Javascript Advanced/Catch keyboard events
