How to disable the "use f on your keyboard" popup message

Whenever I use ctrl+f to search for something on the page this popup shows.


Yes. I get it that I can search in jira using the 'f' but, in some cases, I still prefer to use the browser search.

Any idea how do I tell Jira to stop opening this dialog? (Let me decide without pestering about it!)

Hi David - I don't see an "f" in the list of keyboard shortcuts for Jira. Let me see if someone from Atlassian can take a look at it for you.

Well, I take that back - I overlooked it in the list.  But it does nothing if I just type the "f".

I get the normal search function in Windows when I type ctrl+f

Hello David,

Thanks for raising this concern around using the in-browser search vs the shortcut prompted search. You're able to disable keyboard shortcuts while in Jira by pressing "shift+?" and from there select 'Disable keyboard shortcuts.

There was a post in regards to this change and roll out which can be found at How to disable Keyboard Shortcuts? 

I hope this information proves helpful.

@Stephen Sifers Thanks for the answer, but if I do that then ALL keyboard shortcuts will stop working and that is not what I want.  I do want to be able to use the keyboard shortcuts, only without the continuous nagging of that dialogue.

(Honestly, this seems like an overzealous product manager really really wanted to "educate" the customers on how to use the product. If you are that PM, this is really a bad way. One time should be enough. Stop pestering us about it.)
