Firefox is performing entities decode for URL in address line. For example, try
to place the following link to wiki page (even without the patch), then open it
and look at address line:
Series of hex codes %xx were replaced with Cyrillic chars, which are readable
to anyone who knows Cyrillic alphabet.

However, when you copy/paste such URL to text editor back from address line,
%xx will reappear again - so internally that is the same binary representation,
the decoding is preformed only for visualization.

Opera and Safari probably does this, too. IE8 - does not, haven't checked IE9,

%D0%94%D1%80%D0%BE%D1%84%D0%B0], the description is not decoded with my patch,
only URL. Quite opposite, however probably matches Firefox logic.
