1. Open URL with no filename (default filename at server-side),
2. Try to view its Source Code (Ctrl+U),
3. If HTML title contains national characters, operation fails. Application says:

"C:\DOCUME~1\I\LOCALS~1\Temp\>9 A09B.htm" does not exist.  Create it?

Reproducible: Always

The temp file is created OK, but Firefox fails to properly launch editor (on my machine Source Insight is launched).
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20090917 Shiretoko/3.5.4pre

I can load and if I right click -> View Source it shows the source.
Version: unspecified → 3.5 Branch

Do you launch an external editor? I do.
Some time ago (before FF 3.5, but I'm not sure) FF opened inner editor and everything was fine. Now Ctrl+U launches external one and it's OK in most cases, except this bug.
No, not in an editor.
