    Accented Characters Trouble

    I recently switched my desktop to Spanish. I also switched my keyboard to US international or something so I was able to type accented characters by typing the accent and then the letter, i.e. ' and then e to get é. This worked for a while in with the entire system. Now I can't use this trick in Firefox, only in notepad or OpenOffice Writer. I don't know what I changed. How can I get it to work in Firefox again? Firefox is also in Spanish, in case it matters.

    Thanks.

    System -> Preference -> Keyboard, then add a Spanish layout and edit the shortcut that switches between layouts. You will be able to type in any application with it. I am using Cyrillic that has fa more different characters (with respect to English) than Spanish.
