Steps to reproduce:

imply trying to download the French dictionary from the addon page but the link seems to be broken; this is the link to the dictionaries page:


and this is the link that is supposed to be used to download the French dictionary:


I think the trouble is caused by the special "ç" character on the URL... 

Actual results:

Tried to write do webmaster as suggested on the soft 404 page; received automated email that the webmaster address is not an active address and I have to file a bug....
Nice welcome for people who wants to underline an issue!

Expected results:

Activate webmaster email address;
Repair broken link to French dictionary;

I can access the link from Firefox:
https://addons.mozilla.org/it/thunderbird/addon/dictionnaire-fran%C3%A7ais1/ but not this one:

Perhaps the French localisers know what to do with this.

Pascal, who can help with this?

Not sure where you found the link [1] (without the trailing "1").

From the dictionaries page [2], I can see the link [3] (with the trailing "1") and it works as expected.

If the link [1] is listed elsewhere, we should move this bug to the component related to the page where it’s listed, otherwise we should close this bug as incomplete as I see the correct link on the dictionaries page.

In Thunderbird I use "Add Dictionaries" from the context menu. That takes me to a page whose URL I don't know. On there, this is the link to the French dictionary:
(see screen shot).

In fact, the links is displayed as

Actually, in the DOM inspector the URL shows as
but if I visit this page, it has the link with the 1 at the end.

Weird!! Can you try Thunderbird?

Actually, I can confirm the bug.
Ever confirmed: true
I can reproduce as well when opening the page from Thunderbird, really weird indeed. Also just noticed the extra "s" in the broken link: dictionnaire * s * -fran%C3%A7ais/

Looks like bugs for AMO are not reported on Bugzilla these days (except security bugs) but on GitHub.

I filed this issue https://github.com/mozilla/addons/issues/126 so that we can close this bug and track the resolution on GitHub.

Thanks for reporting the problem!
