In response to a post on the Facebook User Group re the issue of a conflict when mapping keyboard keys to actions in the skin editor I've created this sample file.

The issue occurs when someone has activated the Firefox preference 'Search for text when you start typing'. This preference allows you to open a browser window and start typing to find relevant words in the document. However it also makes the mapping not perform properly or not at all. The fix uses some Javascript in a hidden textfield that disables the keyboard but still allows you to use mapped keys.

Note I've only tested on Mac OS Mojave and Firefox 71.0 with 'search for text when you start typing' active.

I've attached a .ggsk file with the skin elements.
