Re: state of homograph attacks

For some reason, manually adding it to prefs.js with a text editor did not 
work for me.  However, configuring it from about:config worked for me.

Open up firefox, put about:config into the address bar, and then change
network.enableIDN to false by double clicking on it.  If it is working
successfully, you should get a message "domainname.com could not be found" 
when clicking on an IDN link.  You shouldn't need to restart your browser.

V.    Workaround

You can disable IDN support in mozilla products by setting
'network.enableIDN' to false.  There is no workaround known for Opera or
Safari.

Hello,

I use Firefox 1.0 on GNU/Linux but the workaround doesn't work if I
close the browser. No idea what's wrong ...

cheers,
Gerald
