This do not work with Outlook 2002 or Mozilla 1.4's email client
Clarification: The bug is found using using Outlook 2002 and the email client in Mozilla 1.4.
(In reply to comment #1) > this is working for me on a 0.8 branch build w/Thunderbird. Please get a > current 0.8 nightly and retest this. It seems that internally Firebird converts all diacritical (maybe some other too) characters within any (including mailto) links to UTF-8. The problem is, that in case of external programs, the URI's are passed on to the external program in UTF-8 also. Thunderbird apparently can handle UTF-8 encoded URI's, but Outlook can not. Firebird nightly 0.8 behaves similarily.
I get no error when using 0.9 built with firefox
Build is too old to be of use. Please try to reproduce this bug on FF 0.9 or a nightly. Thanks
