How can I type accents in Firefox using a UK keyboard?

I recently switched to a UK keyboard layout (Logitech MX keys with UK layout), from a US international layout. I changed the system settings to use the proper input and it works like a charm on every program I have, except the browser. Even if I have changed Firefox's main language as "English (UK)" and restarted it, it doesn't recognize sequences such as "CTRL + `" follwed by a vocal. Is there any known solution to this issue?

For future readers, I solved this by switching to the UK extended keyboard layout, which behaves like the US international one (only with keys positioned like the UK layout). I find it a bit annoying when writing backticks, but it works fine.

Hi, the Alt Gr key plus the letter you want to be accented works for me. For example á é í ó ú.

This covers acute accents like á, but not grave accents like à (which I had to copy and paste from Word).
