User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20160316085621

Steps to reproduce:

Opened about:newtab page.

Actual results:

It displayed all my pinned web sites including some with internationalised TLDs but it does not properly show IDN TLD but it shows punnycode instead.

Expected results:

Pinned web site should (bellow the page image) display proper IDN TLD instead of punnycode.

I don't have this issue with FF45 and your website http://гном.срб/

See http://i.imgur.com/rgpxaKy.jpg
Interesting. But you also have <title> displayed instead of the domain name in your pinned sites. It may be a problem with my profile. Let me start a new one. I'll report back.
Started a new profile and it's the same. See the next attachement.

I'm using Firefox 45.0.1 on Linux Fedora 23.

Are you using the Linux version built by Mozilla?
No. I am using the distributor's version (as it is usual for Linux users). Let me check with Firefox build from Mozilla.
Downloaded latest stable Firefox 64bit release, localized into Serbian, and it's the same. Firefox 45.0.1, release ID 20160315153207, if that helps.

Loic, are you using the stable release or aurora? I want to try to see if I also get properly shown IDN TLDs if I use the same version as you.

All versions are installed on my computer. Could you test with Nightly in en-US, maybe it's an issue with localized version in Serbian: https://nightly.mozilla.org/
Tried using 64bit, en_US Nightly Linux build. Same thing happens.

This bug doesn't seem to appear in the Quantum Firefox releases. The new tab page behaves as expected for the IDN top level domains in the latest Nightly. @YF, can you please close this bug?
