User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:5.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0
Build ID: 20110615151330

Steps to reproduce:

in about:config I've set "keyword.URL" field to value: "http://www.google.com/search?q="
Then I searched for a string containing character ascii 962 using directly the url field.


Actual results:

pressing enter I noticed that google's search run for that string but substituting character ascii 962 with the ascii 963. 


Expected results:

I should have seen results for character ascii 692. And this shouldn't be a google bug because if I search directly through google.com (and not using url address bar) for ascii 962, it doesn't get substituted by 963 when I press enter.
