User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fi-FI; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fi-FI; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1

When trying to open an html-file by double-clicking within the explorer, and the
directory name contains scandic letters (ä ö å), the file won't open if there is
already a Firefox window open. The file will open correctly if there is no
Firefox window open or if the directory is renamed to not use scandic letters.
OS: Windows XP SP2 Finnish

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Firefox to any page
2.Open Windows explorer to a directory named with scandic letters ä/ö/å and
containing an html-file
3.Double click the html-file

Actual Results:  
An error message appeared claiming the address for the html-file is invalid.
Firefox opened an empty window.

Expected Results:  
The html-file should have opened in a new window or tab.
