Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Firefox 3.0.3
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008092510 Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.3
Standard version installed with Ubuntu

When browsing FTP servers containing fies and folders in Cyrillic Windows 1251 codepage, the charset is 
detected incorrectly.
1) It looks in wrong symbols.
2) View -Character encoding = Western (ISO-8859-1)
3) I cannot download file - got  file not found error
4) I cannot open folder - got wrong folder name error.

I can manually change Character encoding to Windows 1251, then it shows filenames correctly.
But I cannot do 3) and 4) anyway.
When page is re-loaded, codepage goes back to Western (ISO-8859-1)

I set up View - Character encoding - Auto-detect = Russian,
I modified  View - Character encoding - Customise list to include  RU codepages and removed  Western (ISO-8859-1) from the list.
 It did not help.
