(abpwatcher) Ctrl != Accel on Mac

Mac OS X
Firefox or SeaMonkey with ABP installed
latest version of Diagnostics for Adblock Plus

How to reproduce

Install the latest Diagnostics for Adblock Plus on Firefox or SeaMonkey on Mac OS X.

Observed behaviour

The keyboard shortcut assigned to start Diagnostics for Adblock Plus is Ctrl-Shift-F4 despite about:config -> extensions.abpwatcher.startwatching_key having its default value of

Accel Shift M, Accel Shift F4

Unfortunately Ctrl-Shift-F4 is also a default system hotkey on this Mac, making it awkward to start Diagnostics via the keyboard.

This has already been fixed by; the issue here is that Diagnostics for Adblock Plus does not contain that fix.

Expected behaviour

The default keyboard shortcut to start Diagnostics for Adblock Plus should be Command-Shift-F4, which would not conflict with system hotkeys.

Seems fixed in Diagnostics 1.2.5a.222, thank you.

Mass-closing all bugs in the Extensions for Adblock Plus module, these extensions no longer work as of Adblock Plus 3.0 / Firefox 57.
