that IDN support will not be disabled. The details of the new short term
are available. "Darin Fisher, network supremo, has
pulled it out of the bag and come up with a less drastic short-term
solution to the IDN problem. It has just been checked in for all three
upcoming releases. Read about it over in bug 282270, but basically IDN will
still work, but all occurrences of IDN domains in the browser UI (URL bar,
security info etc.) will be the punycode form. There is a pref to re-enable
full IDN - set "network.IDN_show_punycode" to false. As with the previous
plan, this preference will be set to true in all official builds.
Meanwhile the search for a long term solution continues.
