Attached image Screenshot
Steps to reproduce:
a. open about:config
b. create a new preference, name it "test" and set its type to string. 
c. type a value that is not latin1. For example, in the attached screenshot I have used "שלום עולם" which is Hello World in Hebrew.

Actual result:
Text is unreadable. In my case, it stored as "éÜÕÝ âÕÜÝ".

Expected result:
Text should be shown as typed.
