External mail handler is enabled in mozilla by setting network.protocol-handler.external.mailto config string to yes. Clicking on mailto: link in mozilla creates a new outlook message but all cyrillic characters in mailto: string are garbled. Looks like mailto: string is passed to external mail handler in UTF-8 encoding while outlook expects a single-byte string in default system codepage (set to 1251) - cyrillic capital A (0xc0 in codepage 1251) is replaced with 0xd090 and so on. Both Opera and Internet Explorer do not have this problem. Bug 305745 suggests always using UTF-8 for mailto: and although it is still NEW, this is exactly what happens and should not happen in my configuration. Maybe an option should be added control use of unicode or single-byte encoding for mailto. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. click on mailto: link with cyrillic characters Actual Results: each cyrillic character is replaced with two characters (garbled UTF-8) Expected Results: cyrillic characters should be passed in codepage 1251
