Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 on x86_64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 Iceweasel/29.0.1 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140524034236

Steps to reproduce:

Open a HTML file containing

<a href="a#b">fragment</a>
<a href="a%23b">no fragment</a>

and hover over both displayed links.



Actual results:

When hovering above each link the URL displayed at the bottom of the window looks exactly the same.



Expected results:

The two nonequivalent URLs should be displayed differently. (ie. probably the encoded '#' should remain encoded when displayed).

Tested on 32.0a1 (2014-06-01) and Win64

Confirmed, but it looks like IE11 has the same issue.

In Chrome v35
Fragment gives - a#b
no Fragment gives - a%23b

In IE 11
Fragment gives - a#b
no Fragment gives - a#b

In FF 32.0a1 
Fragment gives - a#b
no Fragment gives - a#b
