Can you provide some examples of URL with that issue?
Flags: needinfo?(pganeshraja)
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0

I have tested this issue on Windows 7 x64 and Windows 10 x64 with the latest Firefox release (47.0), the latest Nightly (50.0a1-20160629030209) and also with the build specified in the description (46.0) and I think I've managed to reproduce it.
When testing with google translate, you can observe that the URL is automatically encoded from:
https://translate.google.com/#en/ro/#2 to https://translate.google.com/#en/ro/%232

Is this the issue you are encountering?

I have also tested this issue on Chrome, Edge, IE and the behavior was the same.
Marking this as Resolved - Incomplete due to the lack of response from the reporter.

If anyone can still reproduce it on latest versions, feel free to reopen the issue and provide more information.
