Description

14 years ago
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

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:

In SeaMonkey's all.js, the "false" one was removed by bug 221437 on 10/07/2003
