Do the usual compose sequences work if you remove the ~/.XCompose file?
Can you show us the content of that ~/.XCompose file?
Do your hand-made .XCompose sequences work in LibreOffice/Iceweasel/...?

IOW my crystal ball tells me that your .XCompose file is lacking
a `include "%L"' so it overrides the default rather than extends it.
And you don't notice it in Iceweasel because you haven't set the envvar
GTK_IM_MODULE=xim, so those apps don't actually use your .XCompose
file anyway.
