The "network.IDN.whitelist.la" setting in about:config is being ignored

Posted

Hi, By default .la domains are not enabled to show IDN names (they get converted to punycode). I want to override this just on my PC so I created the new setting network.IDN.whitelist.la as a boolean and set it to true. But when I navigate to http://xn--ls8h.la/ ( http://

I don't think that http://%F0%9F%92%A9.la will qualify as a valid URL.

This forum doesn't seem to be able to display this character

Hello,

Is this really worth any amount of troubleshooting whatsoever? A turd emoticon domain name, displaying nothing but said emoticon.

As you can see from the screenshot, manual whitelisting works with the following site.

If the other one doesn't work, then it's probably because symbol domain names aren't supposed to be allowed. I thought the network.IDN.blacklist_chars preference would be the place to look, but I didn't see the character there.

A font that supports the character must be installed.

  • Windows 8, Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Mountain Lion: works out of the box.
  • Windows 7: update KB2729094.
  • Other operating systems: Symbola font.

I can see the character (also when I hover the link http://%F0%9F%92%A9.la ), but as soon as it is pasted in a reply and submitted then it gets removed including any text that follows it (preview shows it).
That is why I posted the encodeURI version (http://%F0%9F%92%A9.la).
That probably also happened to the OP in the first post that only shows "( http://" as the last text and not that character.
