I'm always hesitant to give advice via the internet because I can't hear the problem.
Me too. But the first thing I'd look into is whether the D and possible Eb and/or E are opening too far. This would cause sharpness on the palm keys. first check the D, if necessary add some cork. Then check the Eb, then the E.

Well the D and Eb palm keys are in tune, and so are the fork keys but I already noticed that the front f, but I already noticed that the front f it still could be the E & F palm keys opening too much. but, it can be OK for F front to not open as much as the F palm. In fact I sometimes make it open less on purpose, to make altissimo better.

If in doubt get a teacher or tech to give it a try, this can be a very crucial area. Once you're happy that the mechanics are good, then you know for sure it's time to work on your playing of the notes.
