You cannot type Latin1 characters in Location bar.

This is from Allan's mail how to change keyboard.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But I did find one way to change the keyboard. It's ugly and dangerous, but it
works.

1) Be careful: if you enter invalid data into this file, bad things could
happen.
2) open a terminal in linux.
3) edit your XF86Config file in your favorite editor. Only root can do this, so
you will need to know the root password for the machine
you are working on. You can edit this file in (at least) two ways:

        % su root
     # emacs (or vi or pico) /etc/X11/XF86Config

--or--

      % su -c "pico -w /etc/X11/XF86Config"

4) Save a copy of this file in case you make a mistake.

5)  In this file, search for the line that reads:

      XkbLayout     "us"

6) Edit this line (be sure that it doesn't begin with a '#'--those lines are
only comments). Insert the keyboard language of your choice.

      XkbLayout     "de" (or "fr" or ?)

NOTE: I don't know what all the actual language codes are. They should contain
all the languages available for Latin1, Latin2, and Euro,
as well as Cyrillic. I haven't experimented much (See step 1)

7) once you edit the line, save the file and reboot the machine.

To change your settings back to the original ones, follow steps 1 to 6 again, or
substitute the copy you made in step 3, then reboot your
machine.

I tested this in 10-20-08 Linux build.  I changed to French keyboard.
Keyboard is changed to French, but accepted characters (יא...) cannot be typed.

This bug was also fixed by switching on the XIM code again, which also converts
GDK keyboard input to Unicode. I tested the latest nightly build, and it was
OK, so I'm marking this FIXED.
