Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:34.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/34.0
Build ID: 20141126041045

Steps to reproduce:

When receiving an email containing an URL like

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/token.cgi?t=ABCdef1234&a=request_new_account

is forwarded by a filter to another recipient.










Actual results:

The recipient then receives 

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/token.cgi?t=ABCdef1234&a=request_new_account

An ampersand gets entity encoded like "&"



Expected results:

The URL should not be altered in any way. This only happens with filter forwards, manual forwards work as expected (does not get corrupted)
