I admit I am quite aggravated by this issue. Apologies.

I should have condensed my point to the fact that users *no longer*
can set UTF-8 as the character set to be used if neither the server
or the document itself specifies a character set.
This used to be possible, but is now deliberately disabled.

Perhaps others might take a look at the developer discussion around the

This functionality was in Firefox until four years ago,

Much appreciated,
