When web-site asks for authentication (e.g. Basic) and you have to type login data using cyrillic charset (Windows-1251), then Firefox sends wrong characters.

For example, the account name is: Администратор and password: 12345

After converting from Base64 i get following bytes: 10 34 3C 38 3D 38 41 42 40 30 42 3E 40 3A 31 32 33 34 35

while it has to be: C0 E4 EC E8 ED E8 F1 F2 F0 E0 F2 EE F0 3A 31 32 33 34 35
