My F2 key in an HTML buffer continues to try to find the next error.
Maybe you are using a different HTML mode?

Anyway, find the keymap the HTML buffer is using and change that.

It's a bit confusing, Emacs has these commands that change GLOBAL
things, but that doesn't change GLOBAL behavior.  The global bindings
really just set defaults.
