Photoshop Kerning Issue

Community Beginner ,

Hello,

I am working on a project in Photoshop and I ran into an issue involving the kerning. I am using the fonts, Cooper Std and Avenir and I noticed when typing out the letters (f & i) in lowercase they are close together in comparison to other letters. I then proceeded to utilize the kerning tab to create spacing in between the letters (f & i) but it seems to be not working. I was wondering does anyone know how to reset/fix this issue? I attached a screen shot below for reference. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Instead of kerning, it is probably ligatures.

 

Here is the fi with ligaturures on:

Here is the fi with ligatures off:

Character panel menu > Open Type > Standard Ligatures

Consider keeping ligatures on, as they are proper in typography.
