Page Load Error
Address Not Found
Firefox can't find the server at www.➡.ws.
In one discussion here on HN I figured out it's probably because of some security measure to prevent phishing. There are some Unicode characters that look like normal ASCII letters (for example in Cyrillic alphabet), so if Unicode worked in urls, you could create malicious sites that would look like real ones:
Also, check your about:config and filter by IDN, you should see a lot of settings there. Any of them not set to default?
Especially check this one:
by default it is set to True.
What other Firefox addons do you have that might be parsing URLs before you visit them? Any?
Thanks a lot for the feedback!
