So, if one uses find dialog or quick find, he should be able to find Cyrillic words. Google does this, and I think that it is fairly important for many cyrillic users, as they usually also surf English sites and may have English keyboard switched on. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open site http://www1.apr.sr.gov.yu/apr.public/ 2. press ctrl+f 3. type "Agencija" Actual Results: Firefox claims there is no such word Expected Results: Firefox should be able to find word Агенција as it is cyrillic counterpart.
Extremely likely to be a WONTFIX. Maybe it is possible to make an extension to do that, though.
IMO it will be a very good optional feature. Boring to implement, but a very user-friendly behaviour.
Just to note that this was submitted before Awesome bar. Similar behavior is also desired there, so this might be implemented as some shared procedure I guess?
You are right. And it could be applied also to other Mozilla products. To Core - String?
Also to note that, at least in Serbian, words could be written both in cyrillic and latin, and is is highly unlikely that user will remember whether site used cyrillic or latin letters.
