Well, on a .be keyboard there is "A" to the right of <tab>...  ;-)
But also see mdz's message and my response: it does happen mostly when
we type "too fast", it's just that all of us have different habits, so
we all make different "errors".

Now my point is that preventing all those possible errors would render
Firefox unusable.
And this should be fixed properly, not by hiding some occurrences to
minimize the complaints (in Dutch this would be called an "operatie
doofpot", which would be something like "operation cover-up" in English,
although it sounds better in Dutch IMHO ;-) ).
