That's for 2 reasons :

- Firefox 3.0 will be much better when these characters in the URL itself (right of the domainname). For instance, <http://sl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seznam_dr%C5%BEav_s_kraticami> will be shown correct in Firefox 3, but not in Firefox 2. 

- for the domainname, there's also better news. Firefox 3 will display these characters too, without showing "puny-code", like www.xn--ii-ema94a.com . For example <http://www.müller.de/> shows correctly in Firefox 3, but not in Firefox 2. But there's a security problem, explained in <http://kb.mozillazine.org/Network.IDN.whitelist.*>. Firefox 3 contains a whitelist for top-level-domains that are safe to use, but .com is not among them !

Note that .si (Slovenia) are *not* yet in the list either.

I can't tell how happy I am that you answered me. Very kind of you, it means a lot.

I understand everything but if no .com domains will be on a whitelist that can't help us much becouse our .si policy does not allow to register this IDN domains. Do you think they will update their policy or would't it be better that when visiting a domain like www.xn--ii-ema94a.com firefox would ask you if you trust that domain and if clicked yes then it would be displayed correctly?

This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.6 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME

.com is still not accepted as a "save" top-level domain, and neither is .si . Neither have any safeguards against malicious URL's at this moment.
No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.8 or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
