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...
At least in the standard (binary distribution) Windows build of Mozilla
1.0 the bug is even worse in that once you've properly set
network.enableIDN to "false" and restarted Mozilla, about.config still
shows the value of network.enableIDN as "false", even though the
browser is now actually running with IDN support.
