+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #382690 +++

In about:config, accel+f should focus the filter box instead of invoking the find bar (which is useless). I fixed this 7 years ago in bug 382690.

This got regressed 4 years ago by bug 502492, which changed the label from "Filter:" to "Search:" and the commandkey from "f" to "r".
Posted patch patchSplinter Review
This just adds a second commandkey "f" (i.e. Ctrl/Cmd+f) in addition to the current Ctrl/Cmd+r.

I wouldn't block the bug on it but it would be good to get an automated test here to make sure we don't regress again.
