The encoding used on the Polish Internet is almost exclusively ISO-8859-2, with some websites in UTF-8, and very few in CP 1250. The problem is not very important, as most of the Polish websites use ASCII-only URLs for compatibility, and only one popular website (Polish Wikipedia) uses accented characters in URLs. It accepts UTF-8 and ISO-8859-2. A simple workaround is changing network.standard-url.encode-utf8 Possible solution: * If CP 1250 Windows (or Polish version, whatever is easier) is detected, either assume that the real encoding should be ISO-8859-2, or turn on network.standard-url.encode-utf8. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Get a compouter with Polish version of Windows installed 2. Try URL with accented characters, like http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/£o¶ Actual Results: It sends URL in CP-1250, getting "Article doesn't exist" page. Expected Results: It should encode URL in either ISO-8859-2 or UTF-8, getting http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%81o%C5%9B (Polish Wikipedia redirects non-UTF-8 links assuming they are in ISO-8859-2)
