Description of problem:
Entering decimal values with the keypad is not possible when using a non-english keyboard layout. The decimal character is substituted by a pipe (|) character.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.use a german keyboard layout

there is already a patch in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108170 ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=160938 ) that solves the problem
one possibility would be to add this patch to [core]/rpms/firefox/FC-3 and include a line like "Patch43: GDK_KP_Separator.GTK2.patch" in the spec file.
(I did that and it works great)
The bug is really annoying when entering monetary values in web-interfaces...
