User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0
Build ID: 20130423212553

Steps to reproduce:

1) I have Selenium IDE  - Version 1.10.0 (Add on installed).
2) running the test case - Verify that the Toolbox and the Developer Tools window state are remembered using the Firefox 21 build 1.
3) Executed the step 5 - Ctl+Shift+S to open the debugger.

Actual results:

Selenium IDE window opened.

Expected results:

As per the test case, it should open debugger window.

Note - If I uninstall the selenium IDE, it works as expected. However, it is an extra step for the user to uninstall selenium IDE unnecessarily.

I have NoScript installed, so NoScript menu opens.

What do you think should be changed?

1) Install Selenium IDE (From developer studio. you should see Selenium IDE)add on
on your firefox browser
2) Try to open debugger (Developer Studio - > Debugger) using the keys - Ctrl+Shift+s

Actual Results -
It opens up selenium IDE as shown in the attached screenshot

Expected behavior - 
The debugger window needs to open at bottom of the window.
I think - Ctrl+Shift+s of debugger command conflicts with Selenium IDE's Alt+Shift+s. Note that othher two options are working fine  - ctrl+shift+I for inspector ; ctrl+shift+K for web console.
One option would be - you can introduce ctrl+shift+d to open the debugger. Provided it is not conflicting with anything else.
I can reproduce this issue on my machine:

Name 	Firefox
Version 	46.0a1
Build ID 	20160111030207
User Agent 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0
Component: Untriaged → Plug-ins
Ever confirmed: true
Product: Firefox → Core
This sounds like hotkey conflict.

Ctrl+Shift+something is a frequent key combo for Firefox's own hotkeys, IMHO an add-on or an NPAPI plugin shouldn't try to hijack it: add-ons and plug-ins ought to select more "exotic" key combos. This bug sounds to me as "it's a bug, but not in Mozilla" — namely, a bug in the Selenium IDE, and which should be reported to them.

I believe this bug to be INVALID ("not a Mozilla bug") but I'd like a second opinion. Benjamin, what do you think?

Totally unrelated to plug-ins. Also addons are allowed to take hotkeys.
