Description

5 years ago
Telemetry data indicates that users of the Khmer localization use the character encoding override relatively often compared to other localizations:
https://bug906032.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=796536

The Khmer localization sets the fallback encoding to UTF-8. For reasons given in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Localizations_and_character_encodings  setting the fallback encoding to UTF-8 is generally a bad idea.

Since there is no Khmer-specific legacy encoding, the best setting for the fallback encoding is probably windows-1252.
