This works in all Windows application (including) IE6 but it does not work in Firefox. When I press Alt+; in Firefox then nothing happens. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install a keyboard remapper. 2. Press Alt+;. Actual Results: Nothing happens. Expected Results: I expect ä to appear.
I tried some additional remaps such as assigning "7" to Ctrl+J. This did not work either. It appears that Firefox cannot handle characters that are invoked with a Ctrl prefix.
