User-Agent: Opera/7.54 (Windows NT 5.1; U) [en] Build Identifier: I am a member of Polish Project of Free Encyclopaedia, Wikipedia. In our site there are pages needs our polish letters, like 'ą' or 'ó'. Wikipedia works good only with UTF coding URLs and Firefox always sends URLs in ISO. Can you add this option to next version of FF? Opera has this option to sending URLs in UTF instead ISO. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
WFM - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050312 Firefox/1.0+
Seems to be WFM with FF 1.0.1. The characters seem to be escaped fine, for example clicking "Nauki ścisłe" takes me to: http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nauki_%C5%9Bcis%C5%82e This seems to be the correct page (no Polish spoken!).
Is this related at all to bug 105909?
yes, it is related to this bug. "example clicking "Nauki ścisłe" takes me to:" Yes, by clicking. But I want to type polish letters on address bar. It is unpractical to use Wikipedia if encoding of sended address is not encoded by UTF-8. I think it is simple to do in Preferences dialog combo box, which changes encoding of sended address.
(In reply to comment #0) It seems firefox's implementation of URL handing is against the recommendations by W3C to _always_ send URLs as UTF-8. Here's a link to the recommendation (for HTML, could not found similar for XHMLT): http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/appendix/notes.html#non-ascii-chars Granted the recommendation does not speek of URLs typed into the browsers location/address bar, but surely it would be stupid to have two types of urls: those typed in (encoded with random charset) and those from other html documents (always in UTF-8 says the recommendation). I.e. there should be no difference whether the URL is typed in to the location bar or it is from a document of UTF-8 or other (ISO-8859-1) encoding. When sent over wire, it should be UTF-8 encoded. At the moment at least URLs written to the Location bar are converted to some non-UTF-8 enconding (ISO-8859-1 on my WinXP platform?). For a working reference, see IE and other modern browsers (pun intended).
IE converts links in UTF, Opera converts link. Both in Win XP and Mac OS X... (Well, Mac OS have UTF implemetation in itself ;)) Firefox either on Mac OS and Windows can not encode properly those URLs. I don't use Safari much, but as I can remember this browser also can't encode URLs correctly. -- Michal Poltyn < firstname.lastname@example.org >
This sounds like an exact dupe of bug 129726. Since latter has been resolved as fixed before this bug was reported, I won't set the dupe just yet. Please comment and also re-confirm the bug with current builds. Many thanks, Cigno
