Windows 10 Pro, Firefox 88.0

I have the key combination Alt+z set to do something.

However, when I press Alt+z a small Bitwarden windos pop's
up asking me to "Fill forms," "Fill & Submit," and more options.

I have removed all Bitwarden keyboard shortcuts in
Firefox extensions > Gear icon (upper right) > Manage Extension Shortcuts
yet, Alt+z still functions to call up the popup window.

Please advise how to disable Alt+z calling up the Bitwarden popup window.

Note: Alt+z is a lower-case "z" not a capital "Z".
I am not holding down the Shift key when doing Alt+z and my caps lock is off.

Thank you.

Another useful shortcut in Bitwarden is ctrl/cmd + shift + 9 to create a new random password and save it in the clipboard. You need to send the command "paste" to reveal it.

Would be nice to have a hotkey to lock and/or logout of ALL clients on the device. Chrome app only lets you use ctrl or alt key, Firefox requires both ctrl+alt. Can't find a single hotkey to use for both browsers. Then there's the standalone app! They should all respond to lock/logout in sync.
