I'm using two different keyboard languages on my Windows 7 and sometimes I switch between them. I'd like to know why the address bar textbox allows different languages while the internet domain addresses are in English! And does anybody knows how I can lock the address bar on English keyboard?

Internationalized Domain Names - that's why.

For example, http://موقع.وزارة-الأتصالات.مصر/

Use Input Language Assistant 2.1, which "Automatically switches input language to English when you type in address bar."
