firefox 28 had dropped support for ibm cp862 encoding.

This is very important feature for my busyness.

A lot of my clients need this kind of support and i expand this 
support to others as well.

many legacy systems create text files with encoding cp862
i have turned many system to work in firefox thus can read
those text files properly regardless the operation system running.

based on this feature i have transfer clients from windows to linux
as well.

Dropping this support will hurt firefox as a leading 
open source browser for me and make me think again on what browser
should i based my busyness on from now on.

I hope you consider again about that feature which i assure you 
make just good for firefox ,gnu/linux and the whole open source 
comunity.
