Methods used on Desktop version don't work. I have both browser.urlbar.decodeURLsOnCopy=true and network.standard-url.escape-utf8=false and URLs are still encoded.

    Thank you for the suggestion. While it's perfectly valid for a lot of users my greatest problem is that it's much harder to edit these URLs: any non-ASCII char takes three times more space and really hard to distinguish. Also, I personally dislike URL shorteners because it's much harder to know what you are opening. However I don't think that any other solution is coming any time soon so I'll accept your solution if you post it as answer until anything better is found.

This seems to be an old bug as reported here. I did not find any other bug report that specifically relates to Android for this problem (Edit:OP has created a feature request)

A url shortner such as Tiny url add-on may be an alternative, till a better solution is found, keeping in mind the reservations of OP in comments
