Details

(Whiteboard: [necko-next])

Right now, we attempt to percent decode the hostname, but we only do it for characters that are allowed in the hostname.

This is because addons usually have an @ in their name and disallowing %40 would break resource URIs.

It would be better if we can just special case resource:// URIs, and be spec compatible for the rest.
