I have a problem. I am able to view a special character in Internet explorer after using urlenoder and decoder, but the same special character is not coming in Firefox browser.

Can anyone explain this why it happens?

I guess the encoding is different in IE and in firefox.Check for the encoding that IE uses for the incoming bytes.

Perhaps you could be more specific?

What exactly are you URL-encoding?
