User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; es-HN; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20021226 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; es-HN; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20021226 details below Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set dmoz.org as the search engine: Edit - Preferences... - Navigator - Internet Search - Search using: dmoz.org 2. Search a string with characters outside the ASCII, for example "mozillá" Actual Results: The query generated by Mozilla is: http://search.dmoz.org/cgi-bin/search?search=mozill%E1 dmoz.org search for "mozill?" Expected Results: (for example) Generate the query: http://search.dmoz.org/cgi-bin/search?search=mozill%C3%A1 (which is generated when writing "mozillá" directly on dmoz.org) It is interesting to see that searching for "mózillá" works properly (two errors are no error, binary logic ;) http://search.dmoz.org/cgi-bin/search?search=m%F3zill%E1 But, in general, dmoz.org uses UTF-8 (I think): http://search.dmoz.org/cgi-bin/search?search=m%C3%B3zill%C3%A1 So, I tried to read those search plugins in "searchplugins" folder of Mozilla and decided to add a line on "dmoz.src" SEARCH tag: "queryCharset="utf-8"" (changes on dmoz.src added as attachment) I really don't know the specification of these SRC files but it turns out that now it works as dmoz.org expects. Finally, finding similar bugs I have found the 62409 "Local Charsets are not supported in SearchPlugins", but I think they are not the same although similar.
See bug "Missing queryCharset in google.src", http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=180674.
