Is there some way to prevent the default find / search (CTRL+F / CMD+F) in Google Chrome from being overridden?
I've noticed a few applications such as Atlassian Confluence that overrides find with their custom implementation.
If the Confluence site is overriding the
keydown event using a JS event listener, you'll need to write a userscript which will remove the event listener so the functionality is restored to the captured shortcut.
I haven't used Confluence, but if Atlassian has overridden the Find command
ctrl+F / cmd+F, that is very bad behavior on their part and the best course of action is to contact support and complain about that bad UX.
