Allow disabling some hotkeys

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
    Firefox on unbuntu uses alt-# to swap tabs. Like alt-2 goes to the second tab. However, figma uses this hotkey to do something, and so when I try to change tabs in my browser figma prevents this. If I could turn off this hotkey of figma’s, then I could use it to perform my regular browser actions.

  2. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)

  3. Ask questions to bring the community into the conversation
    (e.g. Does anyone else experience this? Is anyone using a plugin or workaround to help solve this?, etc.

I’m a developer so I tend to use hotkeys everywhere I can. I like that figma has hotkeys for pratically everything, but I don’t like it if figma hijacks some popular browser hotkeys.

This may be an insignificant issue, I just realized ctrl-tab still works, so I can just use that to get off figma’s tab then use alt-# like usual. Feel free to close this discussion if it isn’t helpful.
