I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 and in the keyboard shortcut menu I accidentally set one of the shortcuts as CTRL + F, I corrected this. However in applications such as firefox, evince and gedit CTRL + F is no longer opening the search toolbar. Even though it is no longer set as a shortcut for anything else.

Furthermore the find toolbar shortcut is not defined within the keyboard shortcut menu so I cannot reset it.

How do I reset the keyboard shortcuts to default?

I have found a similar question however all the methods in the answers do not seem relevant to Ubuntu 13.04 (Find in applications is not in the menu and gconf is replaced by dconf).

Does anyone know how I can solve this?

Thanks in advance!
