Description

7 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b7pre) Gecko/20100923 Firefox/4.0b7pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b7pre) Gecko/20100923 Firefox/4.0b7pre

IE has Unicode support for the Turkish domain names. It would be great to see it in Firefox too. Currently Firefox shows hürriyet.com.tr as xn--hrriyet-n2a.com.tr
It is not readable, it is not real, it is not user friendly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type hürriyet.com.tr to the location bar
2. Enter
3.
Actual Results:  
Shows xn--hrriyet-n2a.com.tr

Expected Results:  
It should show hürriyet.com.tr

I see this on 4.0b7pre, but I also see it in IE9 beta.
We require that there is a policy for each TLD to get whitelisted for IDN.

I don't know anything about the policies but you might want to contact with Attila http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/tr.html
When we set up this system, we did contact each registry to let them know about it. If you want to contact them again and encourage them to apply, that would be marvellous :-) But we can't act without an official request from the registry.
