Links with umlauts in mails lead to wrong URLs in Firefox
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/188.8.131.52 Build Identifier: Version 184.108.40.206 (20070604) If I get a link to a umlaut domain within a mail in Thunderbird (e.g. http://www.wüstenberg-medienrecht.de/) and I click on it Firefox opens a wrong URL (e.g. http://www.w%c3%bcstenberg-medienrecht.de/) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Confirming, but more a bug than a security problem. Firefox doesn't support %-escaping in the hostname (since that's a common way to abuse/fool people), although there is some talk of supporting it. Thunderbird is over-escaping I guess (doesn't work if IE is the default browser, either).

As IDN hostnames take off this is probably an increasingly important bug to fix for Europe and Asia
