Hello,

 

Maybe you can to try install/update/upgrade Firefox 30?

 

But maybe it not related.... if previously it works and just Key upgraded to (1.6.140?). And if current shorcut/hotkeys was without troubles before.

Probably it should be work with Firefox 29.0.1 too....

So.... maybe someone comes here with same situation.

 

My experience about Firefox just with systems, where it simply not work about CTRL+F2 (and F-Secure Key);

In your situation -  how about other browsers (Internet Explorer) or simply with CTRL+F2 - it work (probably yes) with Key 1.6.140?!

 

Previous version (1.6.139) probably work with Firefox 29.0.1/30 - but I not really know.... which changes in Key during that "update" - can be important for that trouble-situation.

 

Does you also mean.. that you visible Key-picture with "password/login form" and tips about "you able to use CTRL+F2" ?! And just "CTRL+F2" hotkeys/shortcut does not work? Can be here something, which can be in somewhat reasons... block it - or overload?!

Same problem in IE 11.0.9600.17126
I can see Key-picture and "Tip: Use CTRL + F2 to enter your user name and password anywere"

The password is working ok but I have to check my username in the Key program.

Maybe it's mean.. that trouble not about Firefox...

 

Also.. I can not to check with Windows 7 now (if you mean that Windows 7 and not Windows 8.1), but:

 

 With my system - Internet Explorer and system able to get "CTRL+F2" by F-Secure Key.

 

Also... for "CTRL+F2" need just use "CTRL+F2" - it's not really needed do with browser.

Probably your situation... that CTRL+F2 not work - if you try do that during just place with any application/system or just for Wordpad/Notepad.  If yes... probably here strange situation.... maybe here need something by F-Secure Key team for checking or other dreams around. Because I met some kind of same.. but it just when... load system and probably just CTRL+F2 long "loading" too.

 

But if it work with any other applications, Notepad/Wordpad... and just with browsers "CTRL+F2" have troubles. Maybe here have something like protection for browsers (like prevent any exploits and improving any settings)?

 

------

Of course, like strange addition - what about ... trying to re-install F-Secure Key (with back-up User Data / Passwords / Entries before that action) - if you already not did that.

I have Windows 7 and "CTRL+F2" does not work in any application. I made a "Repair" of Key but that did not work out. I will try to remove and re-Install Key next week.

Also.. you maybe can to try check something about "Hotkey does not work Windows 7" by any search-engine for any Microsoft instructions.

 

Maybe just because it stopped work with anything... maybe here something about troubles with hotkeys/shortcuts, which can be known for Microsoft and they have any instructions for same situations.

 

Or.. someone else with Windows 7 able to check about "CTRL+F2" and new version of Key. Also maybe before "update" to new version.... was "Microsoft updates"....   my system with latest updates.. have two strange situations about. But not so critical - when something goes to "not work" (but close to that - because a lot of new steps...... for normal work).
