"ć" is non-ascii character. Due to inability to handle unicode paths (see bug 84384), firefox crashes each time I try to start it up. However, first time (after instalation or deletion of application data\mozilla folder) it showed alert window (something about security not functioning properly, see attachment) for a few seconds before crashing. Firefox 2 worked ok, because it created stuff in folder "C:\Documents and Settings\Dženan Zukic" (notice "c" instead of "ć"). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create user account with non-ascii characters in it. 2. Install firefox 3 3. Start firefox 3 Actual Results: Crash report window is shown. Expected Results: Firefox3 starts.
Created attachment 325956 [details] Alert window that is shown for a few seconds firefox 3 is started for the first time (with profile path containing non-ascii characters)

Known issue, sadly. Firefox handles Unicode alright, but NSS (the security component) can't handle characters outside the native codepage.
