RESOLVED DUPLICATE of bug 1257804

People

(Reporter: caspy77, Unassigned)

Details

1) View any page (which qualifies) in Reader View.
2) Click the URL and copy it
3) paste it somewhere

Expected:
The pasted URL appears identical to the apparently copied URL.

Actual:
The pasted URL has about:reader?url= appended to the front along with converted characters throughout.

Additionally (and I don't know if the fix for this would fix it) the *built in* firefox function to email a page passes on the likewise mangled URL which could lead to users unknowingly (absentmindedly) sending broken links.

Just tested and I'm not seeing this on 45 or beta 46, but am on 47, so definitely a regression.
Hope we can get this fixed before shipping.
