User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4 The W3C XHTML 1.0 Strict Standard wants all variables in a GET query to be separated by & and not &. Even if the user specifies & Firefox makes it & and thus the newly opened page gives the error of being "not compliant to W3C XHTML 1.0 Strict" By clicking on any image at http://students.iiit.ac.in/~anurag_rana/pics.php?album=shop, we get a link with problems. If we click on the "W3C validator" on that page, it tells us that its not W3C XHTML Strict. If we change the link to "&", it works. Really annoying to see that a "correctly formatted" page is shown "not correct" because of this so called "conversion of & to &" Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open http://students.iiit.ac.in/~anurag_rana/pics.php?album=shop 2.Click on any image. 3. a.Click on the W3C XHTML 1.0 validator image on the page. b.Change the & in the URL to & and then click the validator. Actual Results: Case 'a' gives bad result and 'b' gives good result. (Refering to steps above). Expected Results: The links opened with Firefox should not convert & in the URL to &.
This is no way a firefox problem. Tell the webmaster of that site to use htmlentities() on his his hidden input type called 'reurl'. Since this doesn't affect cross-browser compatibility, I'm not reassigning to tech evangelism. -->INVALID
