F3 does not work as a shortcut.

This is on Linux using Mozilla Firefox 43.0.1. Also tested using Pale Moon 25.8.1 with a clean profile. Setting the shortcut from within Customizable Shortcuts circumvents the bug.

Also, I tried changing the shortcut inside the overlay to keycode="VK_F3" but that did not work either (I think the setting from the overlay has no precedence over the about:config setting).

A solution not requiring external addons would be welcome (Customizable Shortcuts does not work in Pale Moon).

Workaround with keyconfig:

  1. install keyconfig from here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=72994
  2. Set Find Again to disabled and set Secure Login to F3
  3. Restart your browser

Are you sure VK_F3 is free? Have you tried other function keys?

F3 is not free, it is assigned to "Find Again" by default. It would be nice if Secure Login could override that: setting the Find Again shortcut to something else automatically when it conflicts with Secure Login.
Have you tried other function keys? Yes, F9 is free by default and works.
