Files not opened, because a wrong URL appears in the address bar when double-clicking a file that is inside a folder with non-english characters
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20060404 SeaMonkey/1.0.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20060404 SeaMonkey/1.0.1 Category that probably this error belongs to: - "File Handling" category [I didn't find this category when reporting this bug] Computers in which the error is seen: One computer with: - Seamonkey 1.0.1 [with the xpi of the Spanish language], clean installation. - windows 2000 in spanish. Another computer with: - Seamonkey 1.0.1 [with no xpi added], clean installation. - windows 2000 in spanish. Circumstances when the error is seen: - You go into a folder with a non-English character, like "gestión" - You double-click on a .html file inside the folder Error effects: - Seamonkey fails when opening the file. - An error page is displayed [please see the screenshot, specially the difference between the address bar and the error page] Comments about the seen error: - An extra "25" is added inside the URL (!), next to the "escaped code". - The URL in the address bar (is wrong) is different to the error page one (this last is correct) Extra comments: - If you drag and drop the file inside Seamonkey, it works flawlessly (the right URL appears in the address bar) - This error has been bugging people in Seamonkey 1.0.1, 1.0.0 and 1.0b at least. But not in Mozilla 1.7.X. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: [At least in windows 2000 in Spanish] 1. Create a folder with a non-English character, like "gestión" 2. Put an .html file in the newly created folder 3. Double-click on the file Actual Results: You get an error, like if the file did not exist (the URL seen in the address bar is wrong). Expected Results: The file should have been opened. This is very irritant. Also we have to be careful when an Internet Explorer user is near so he does not see this!

I suppose the extra "25" appear because Seamonkey is escaping the % as %25 (of course, it shouldn't try to escape it, as it is already a escaped code). I've set the priority of this bug as "normal", though many people (as me) have a lot of documentation in html files under folders with non-english characters and for us is really annoying... there are also a lot of people who does not suffer because of this. Last but not least, I have available some computers (two with Seamonkey 1.0.1 and others with Mozilla 1.7) so you can ask me to do the tryings you need.
Severity: major → normal
Does it happen with firefox 1.5.0.x?
