Since CTRL-F is now used to find something, the shortcut to apply the last filter is now CTRL-ALT-F. That means we no longer have a shortcut to open the last used filter dialog box so we can alter the settings. Why on god's green earth would Adobe change that? Do they really think we always apply the exact same settings every time we need to apply a filter? This was a shortcut I used dozens of times a day, and now I have to manually select the filter every damned time I need to apply it. Come on Adobe, this is just plain stupid.

As noted, you can customize the keyboard shortcuts so that Last Used Filter uses Cmd + F by select Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts...

This change was made to make Cmd + F consistent with other applications that do search.

Thanks. I can reproduce this issue with the Last Filter with Dialog box not working with the default Keyboard Shortcuts. I've logged an issue for engineering. The workaround I could find is to map Last Filter back to the legacy Cmd + F, and then Cmd + Opt + F will bring up the last filter with dialog correctly.
