[arch-general] Firefox Ctrl-W

Has anyone been able to figure out how to disable the Ctrl-W shortcut in
Firefox? As a Vim user I'm constantly accidentally closing tabs when I want
to delete the last word in a text field.

It seems to be _very_ difficult to find a reliable method to do this short
of recompiling Firefox. I use Plasma Desktop. If there's some way to filter
events going to the browser window, that's a viable solution too, but I
haven't found any way so far.

Many thanks,
