This can be solved locally by modifying the about:config file. We hope that the Syrian IDN ccTLD (xn--ogbpf8fl) is included as part of the Network Whitelist. We are using the standard Code Points for the Arabic Language available at http://www.iana.org/domains/idn-tables/tables/sa_ar_1.0.html thanks Reproducible: Always

Mustafa, do you work for STE ?
(In reply to comment #2) > Mustafa, do you work for STE ? Hello Mr.Hermans; I worked in STE previously, but now i am working in National Agency for Network Services (NANS), NANS is a government entity established in 2009 by a legislative law called Digital Signature and Network Service Law (Law number 4 dated 25/2/ 2009) which has been approved by the Syrian Parliament as a step toward governmental reform of the Telecom and Internet Sector in Syria. This law assigned to NANS many responsibilities and functions related to data network services such as: • To manage the Syrian ccTLDs (including the IDN ccTLD) • To define policies and rules for domains registration. and we recently get the delegation for (.SY and IDN) from IANA (http://www.iana.org/root-whois/xn--ogbpf8fl.htm) (http://www.iana.org/root-whois/sy.htm) Best Regards Mustafa
I think Wikipedia needs to be updated, it still mentions STE as the registry :-)
Mustafa is the listed technical contact in the IANA database for .<Souria> http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/xn--ogbpf8fl.html With respect to .<Souria> Being whitelisted, I see no reasons not to. The registration rules are located here: http://nans.gov.sy/index.php/services/sy-domain/29-dotsouria Registration Rules forbid confusingly similar string registration (as best I can tell with the aid of my handy Google Translate) Mustafa, the reporter, has identified the standard code points are here: http://www.iana.org/domains/idn-tables/tables/sa_ar_1.0.html Codepoints are identical to Saudi Arabia's, which are already white-listed Reccomendation: Approve addition
Creating patch to include this in the whitelist
Changing to assigned and assigning it to me
Created attachment 534501 [details] [diff] [review] Adds .<Souria> to IDN Whitelist in all.js Please see comment thread today. I have verified that the reporter is officially from the appropriate and authorized registry, that there are rules in the t&c for the registration of names, and that they use the identical codepoints for a TLD that is currently whitelisted.
