FF3: Address not fount - Firefox can't find the server at www.%e2%9e%a1.ws.

FF3 works great (for me) with these on Mac, Ubuntu, Windows, etc. What platform are you using?

Based on your error message, I bet it's not FF3 but whatever showed you the link. If I had to guess, you clicked on the link/page through a feed reader or something?

Can you confirm whether it happens when you click directly from this page/site on Hacker News? (which seems to be handling them great)

I tried going from this page directly, and get the same error message (that too seemingly immediately - doesn't even seem like it tries a DNS resolution, though I'm not sure): "Firefox can't find the server at www.%e2%9e%a1.ws."

I'm using Firefox 3.0.5 on Windows XP.

FYI, the other link you gave in http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=498246 too doesn't work for me: "Firefox can't find the server at www.%e0%b2%95%e0%b2%b0%e0%b3%8d%e0%b2%a8%e0%b2%be%e0%b2%9f%e0%b2%95.com."

Thanks a lot for the response. Is the problem like what this guy had? An addon that may have changed Firefox's default IDN resolution?
