I made a global shortcut to block an unwanted in-application shortcut


I have had a problem with the Ctrl-Q keyboard shortcut in Firefox and Pale Moon (which, as far as I know, cannot be changed): I will want to close a tab with Ctrl-W, but my clumsy finger hits Q, closing the browser. I just thought of a successful solution: in my distro's keyboard shortcuts menu, make a new shortcut that uses Ctrl-Q. It doesn't matter what the shortcut leads to. As I hoped, it nullifies the browser's Ctrl-Q shortcut.
