This extension is great!

If you want to do things like this on the Chrome browser there's an extension called AccentsPlus:

I love this extension. Unfortunately, it has ceased to work in FF 10 (both Beta 1 and Beta 2). I first noticed this when trying to create "é" (I ended up with an "e", but no accent); I then tried a number of combinations, and none work.

please get in touch :-)

The Reviewer has contacted me and I found out this issue was affecting gmail only; I found a fix which will be released in version 2.10.

For contacting me about problems like this, use the Zombie key toolbar button and the bottom menu "go to the Zombie Keys support site..." then you mail me from the bottom of each page. The toolbar button can also help to figure out what the correct shortcut would be - but make sure you have the correct keyboard layout configured!

hth, Axel

Using an English Keyboard Rated 4 out of 5 stars

With an English keyboard, I need to use ctrl+alt+ key for an acute accent and ctrl+' for a grave accent. The umlaut works fine as advertised with ctrl+shift+:
Useful add-on once this is understood!

not perfect with UK keyboard Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works pretty well (I'm keeping it), but with some reservations.

On a UK keyboard it doesnt work exactly the same as MS (word at any rate).

for example in word you do indeed press Cntrl+grave`,e to get e grave
in zombiekeys TB you need to press Cntrl+@,e to get e grave. If I feel keen I'll post the complete set another time. It does seem odd that it isnt exactly the same, but then I never understood keyboard mappings.

On a full keyboard with a number pad you can just as easily use the Alt0123 type shortcuts. But with a laptop this is tedious to the point of impracticality. 8/10

UK keyboard in 2.5

This is now better addressed by customized key mappings which will be specific for a specific keyboard layout. In version 2.5 in UK (and Irish) layouts you can now use CTRL+' and CTRL+# (adjacent keys) for à and á. Also CTRL+SHIFT+^ for â and CTRL+SHIFT+@ for å. CTRL+SHIFT+~ is a little problematic as it is used in Firefox to toggle through tab groups, so this is likely going to be changed to CTRL+ALT.

The important fact is that it should be possible to use the key combos in these keyboard layouts, as the generated key codes are actually different depending on keyboard locale. When used frequently as part of a language, the combos should be easy to remember (I always use ä, ö and ü when writing German) but for the less frequently used combos (or the ones occupied by application hot keys) , the toolbar button gives quick access to them.

I am hoping to add more keyboard locales in the future, depending on user requests.

one of the best foreign character implementation. Like somebody else mentioned a little help file would be nice, like the picture in the image gallery.

Excellent for Spanish (corrected) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Zombie Keys 1.1.4 is excellent for Spanish. It works fine in TB 3.0.10. It implements the keyboard shortcuts for accented letters and special punctuation exactly like MS Word 2003 and 2007 do. It is much quicker to use than abcTajpu. Also, it will do the characters ö, ü, ¡, and ¿ by a single keyboard stroke where abcTajpu requires a multi-step menu selection. --jreid

I love Zombie Keys!! Please update it for Firefox 3!! The other extensions aren't nearly as good/convenient.

This is a great little add-on, one of my favourites! You can use the tweak linked by helloworld.c and it works without problems ( but don't try to enable everything else! )

This extension should be integrated in the next version of Firefox (3.0). I cannot wait anymore for the support of international support in FF3. Please update the extension... Please..

Wonderful addition for Firefox. It fills in that big void you feel when your favorite web browser limits you to your plain English keyboard characters. Does its purpose well and characters are entered just like in Word, so there's nothing new to learn if you've already been doing that.

I love this extension that I am using to write in French and in Polish. However, could you please update it for Firefox 3? Thanks for your work and thanks in advance for the update.

British keyboard compatibility Not yet rated

It's been noted (only once as far as I can tell) that this extension works only partially when using a UK keyboard layout. Would love to see a fix.

There is now a UK layout since version 2.5. More country specific layouts will follow on user request.

Gmail problems Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Recently had to delete and reinstall Firefox (2.0.0.9) and Zombie, but now Zombiekeys no longer work in the body of a gmail. Works fine in the address bar of Firefox, even works fine in the address bar "TO:" or "CC." of Gmail, but does not work in the body of the text. It did before. Any clues/suggestions?

Great addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of the best addons I have found, and does exactly what I need. I have always found it a pain to try to figure out how to do special characters, accents, etc. like these in Firefox, but this makes it easy and intuitive.

Excellent extension! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As someone who types a lot of stuff in Spanish I appreciate not having to remember ASCII codes to enter accented letters. ¡Gracias por una extensión muy útil!
