I've had a similar problem developing a web application for my company.
When trying to log in with a typical user - password form, I've noticed
that the password input is not sending correctly codified characters, so
the validation will fail (the same application works perfectly with FF2,
IE6 and IE7). This only affected the password input, not the clear text
one for the login. I've tracked the http communication and I've noticed
that firefox 3.0b5 is sending incorrectly codified characters in the
POST request.

For instance, using login='tést' and password='tést' (both using non-
ascii characters), firefox3.0b5 under Ubuntu 8.04 will send through POST
the parameters login='tést' and password='test' (stripping the accented
non-ascii characters). This seems a problem when typing, as if I
copy&paste 'tést' into the password input instead of manually typing it,
everything works.
