Steps to reproduce:

 www.аррӏе.com/ is seen as Apple but it really is www.xn--80ak6aa92e.com/ 

That url is informative but other urls could be used for scams.


Actual results:

 www.аррӏе.com/ is seen as Apple but it really is www.xn--80ak6aa92e.com/ 

That url is informative but other urls could be used for scams.


Expected results:

It should show the real address and the expected one when unicode is used.
fwiw, this does not currently affect FF57 because we regressed support for unicode domains in the toolbar - bug 1391421 is there to fix it but I'm not sure what the proper solution should be.

P2 should be fair. And per the conclusion in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1391421#c13 we should keep monitoring bug 1332714 and probably align their solution in the future.
