Seems that Firefox knows something about universal usability:

Key event not available on GTK2: key="u" modifiers="accel shift" browser.xul

#19779 is a duplicate

press f12 and try new identity shortcut

Also it doesn't work when Torbutton is pressed (both shortcuts).

I'm adding the terms "hotkey" and "keyboard shortcut" to this ticket so that people of the future can hopefully turn it up in their searches, which I was not able to when I filed a duplicate at #27516!

Maybe those terms could also end up in the Summary or Description of this ticket?

Thanks so much to all, and especially gk for respectfully closing my redundant other ticket!

Whoops, sorry for yet another dupe.

So Ctrl+Shift+U is the GTK hotkey for numeric Unicode codepoint entry. Hence Firefox's warning about Ctrl+Shift+U (code for the specific combo originated in this Bugzilla comment).

Probably nothing that can be done here, unless you want to change the New Identity hotkey to something else.
