A Forked F vent is fitted to take the stuffiness out of the forked F fingering (it compensates for RH3 being closed), hence the name 'forked F vent' as it's open or opens when the forked F fingering xxx|xox is used.

An F resonance key is a different thing entirely and usually found on German spec oboes to stabilise F when played with the keyed fingering xxx|xx/o - it's a small closed standing key that's opened by the F key.

On oboes without the forked F vent fitted, you'll have to vent the forked F fingering with the Eb key (RH or LH Eb key depending on the context).
