In about:config there is the parameter "network.IDN.blacklist_chars" that contains what looks like garbage graphic characters.

It looks weird - like it is corrupt.

Is this normal?

yes, this is normal & done for security purposes. the setting contains characters that are not allowed for domain addresses, so please don't change the preference.
