Windows XP

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0
Build ID: 20121128204232

Steps to reproduce:

Some discussion of error is in
German keyboard, when pressed ö or ä (or some other keys), zero values for onkeydown/up are delivered, some keys deliver wrong values.

Actual results:

onkeydown/up deliver wrong values in new FireFox 17 versions comparing to FireFox 3.6, that delivers correct codes..

Expected results:

As FireFox 3.6, IE and Chrome deliver ö=192 and ä=222, so I would like, that FireFox 17 and up deliver correct numbers for onkeydown/up events, and not only for ä or ö, but for the rest keys too..

The error can be reproduced on any system, not only german, with help of osk.exe, also microsofts own keyboard emulator.
