Enable IME in password field in Firefox 4.0.1

Sometimes, you need software keyboard and uses GTK+ Input method module in password field in Firefox browser.

Why it doesn’t work?
May be security, Firefox disable input method context support in password entry widget by default.

How to make it works?
Modify file: widget/src/gtk2/nsGtkIMModule.h

// If software keyboard is needed in password field and uses GTK2 IM module
// for inputting characters, we need to enable IME in password field too.

Rebuild firefox.
