This bug sounds similar to bug 273225. But I'm not certain, so I'm filing a new
one here. This bug only occur in Windows.

The unsupported character is replaced with a underscore (_), and the file size
becomes zero.

In my case, I'm using a Chinese (simpified) version of Windows and the file name
is also in Chinese (simpified). So it seems to be rather ridicious that Firefox
can't resolved such path.

I set this as critical since it results in data loss.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upload a file with the character "达", a Chinese (simpified) character
2. As a control, copy that file and remove it to something safe, e.g. English name
3. Upload them together

Actual Results:  
The character "达" is replaced witj "_".
The file size of that file becomes zero.

Expected Results:  
Same result as the control file.

Change the character encoding of this page to "UTF-8" to see the character "达".
