Description

17 years ago
With the current build, on HTML composer, non-ASCII path or filename is
displayed as escaped string on insert link window.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a HTML composer window.
2. Enter a string, highlight the string and select Insert | Link
3. Click on Choose File.
4. Choose a filename which has a non-ASCII path or filename. and click on OK to
return to the insert link window. You can see the non-ASCII path or filename is
displayed as escaped string. It should display the path or filename in native
encoding as 4.x does.

Screen shot to follow.

Discussed this with Naoki. This requirement should be limited to local file
access, since it's impossible to know the system encoding of a remote machine.

The non-ascii path name is display as this every where in this browser
application, no matter the which dialog window or text field.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it's a dup of bug 29698 for me.

Is this a requirement?  I see a space in the path displays as %20.
(testing with NS6.2 commercial).   Is this regression?

Yes, it's more like a feature requirement. I don't think it's a regression, this
has there since 6.0.

can repro on Thunderbird 3.1 into mail compose window.

I think that this code (editor/ui/dialog) is into comm-central for Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.  Original report is for HTML composer on Mozilla Application Suite, so I change product to SeaMonkey.
