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.
The actual bug referenced by Gerald is that if you use about:config to set it,
it *works* without having to restart, but at the next restart of the browser,
the setting no longer works...
