Most of the current keyboard shortcuts don't work for me (OS X with FF 3.6 and FF 4.0). They are instead preëmpted by system-level keybindings. For instance, Ctl-4 switches Exposé to workspace #4.

Solutions might involve using a different modifier key on the Mac, or using plain alphanumerics without a modifier a la gmail and Google Reader.

Firefox on Mac 14.0.1 and higher uses Ctrl + Opt as default modifier keys for access key. So there is no problem with the current version of Firefox.
