Have you tried changing the IM to XIM?

Couple of things to try:

1. first kill firefox, then:
   export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim 
2. Go to settings and change input method to XIM.
   (not on Ubuntu right now, but it's under settings and keyboard/input 
   method. The default is usually D-BUS or something.)
   Relogin and start firefox.
