Firefox users: you can go to about:config and switch network.IDN_show_punycode to true.

Yep! Unfortunately this always shows punycode for all IDNs not just malicious ones. Wish they'd come up with a solution as a default for just the potentially malicious ones like Chrome did!

 

Or they could show it like https://pаypal.com/ (punycode there)

Yes! This is similar to what IE does with IDNs, by showing an informational alert that you're on one as a pop up. (Not sure which IE version does this). Some have suggested color coating non-ASCII text as well. Lots of potential solutions 😊
