If a user e-mails another a URL using an IDN encoded in UTF-8, and the
receipient tries to load it with FF, and the namespace in question uses
UTF-8 instead of IDNA ACE encoding, will the FF user be able to load
that URL?

What about URLs with such IDNs embedded in HTML served by servers in
that namespace?
