We should enable support for internationalized domain names (IDN) by setting "network.enableIDN" to "true". It's already enabled in Mozilla 1.4 and Netscape 7.1: http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/modules/libpref/src/init/all.js#608 About IDN: http://devedge.netscape.com/viewsource/2003/idn/

Comment on attachment 136226 [details] [diff] [review] patch Brian, r?
Just wondering...(and I know this probally isn't the best place for this type of wondering) why is it the Mac OS X Firebird builds seem to have IDN enabled set to false yet IDN names work fine?
Riscky: no idea. For the history: all.js used to have duplicate prefs for "network.enableIDN", one set to true, one to false. Blake removed the "true" one on 11/07/2002 17:45: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?date=explicit&mindate=11%2F07%2F2002+17%3A45&maxdate=11%2F07%2F2002+17%3A45 In SeaMonkey's all.js, the "false" one was removed by bug 221437 on 10/07/2003 00:04: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?date=explicit&mindate=10%2F7%2F03+00%3A04&maxdate=10%2F7%2F03+00%3A04
