I have a folder which contains files and folders whoes name contain non-latin
characters, such as cyrillic and chinse idiograms. Browsing this folder with the
file:// protocol I only see the files with latin characters. I should also note
that the file:// protocol appears to be insisting on displaying in cp1225. This
is an issue since Windows stores long file names in UTF8. This is observed with
the release version of 1.4, and I am certain it effects previous version. I can
not confirm whether this issue affects other platforms.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure that all possible languages are checked in the regional-options
control panel. 
2. Create folder containing files with name using non-latin characters, such as
cyrillic - you can use 'character map' to help you.
3. Browse the folder and see the results.

Actual Results:  
As described in the details above.

Expected Results:  
A) displayed the page in UTF8
B) displayed ALL the files and folders in the directory

Seems it has dup bug(s), couldn't find an exactly one (bug 188383 may related).
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This issues is dependent on bug 239279 (Need Mozilla binary that supports
Windows unicode API) being fixed. This issues will probably resolve itself once
the bug is corrected.

I can also confirm through tests that this is an MS-Windows specific issue,
since the behaviour is correct in MacOS X.
Depends on: 239279
Ever confirmed: true
Testing with Firefox 2.0 in Win XP Pro, I can confirm that this bug is fixed, at least in this platform.  So I'm going to close this bug.  If it isn't fixed in Win2000 or if you find it's not fixed, please reopen it or write a comment here.

I suppose the fix of this bug is a direct or indirect consequence of fix of bug 162361 or bug 332123 or similar bugs.  But fix is fix, who cares? ;)
