User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0 Build ID: 20150806001005 Steps to reproduce: I read the user-config over autoadmin. After an update from FF 39.0.3 to 40, the autoadmin.global_config_url woud only be read on the first startup after the installation. Another FF-startup would'n read the configuration and starts with the last one (i think the failover.jsc) Actual results: nothing?! Expected results: the new configuration loaded should be working.

Summary: autoadmin → Problem with reload of config with autoadmin.global_config_url
It depends on german "Umlaut" äöü within a external config file, here in a comment line. If i delete the "Umlaut" within the comment line, the autoadmin file would read normally.
