Even though this is old thread, I think it's important so I'm adding my
comments on it (I just found it using search).
I think global keybindings should be disabled by default (currently they are
enabled by default).
1) They clash with other programs. For example, in Firefox Ctrl+Shift+A is
used to open Add-ons page and Ctrl+Shift+P is used to open private browsing
windows. I can't use those keybindings in Firefox if they are set as global
keybindings in Jitsi.
The worst part is that unless user has already dived into Jitsi's advanced
settings, they can't guess why keybindings don't work. I used hours to find
out why some keybindings didn't work and finally by chance I noticed that I
didn't have any problems when Jitsi was closed.
2) If global keybindings are important for some people, they can set them
themselves. I believe that most users don't expect Ctrl+Shift+A to answer to
incoming call but use mouse instead so it's useless to enable them by
