When viewing Microsoft Knowledgebase RSS feeds, when I click on a link in the feed then Firefox (the default browser) has an incorrect query. It's hard to explain, so I'll attach a test case. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open test case in Minefield 2. Click on the link 3. Note the incorrect query part Actual Results: Query part is incorrect, even though it's correct in the source of the test case. Minefield goes to http://support.microsoft.com/kb#3694530316919147932, but the actual link is http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;938134&sd=rss&spid=3198 Expected Results: Parse link correctly? This problem does not occur in FF 22.214.171.124; I believe it started happening around a month ago, but I'm not positive.
Created attachment 268043 [details] Test case to show incorrect URL behavior Open this test case in FF, then click on the link.

Interesting. When I open it from the link to the test case, it works correctly. If I save the test case to my machine, it works incorrectly (it goes to http://support.microsoft.com/kb#8654318933861322894 instead). Please try "save link as", then rename the file to .html and open it and try to reproduce. Thanks.
It makes no difference here. Did you also test this with a new profile with default settings?
Hm, I copied my profile to another machine and could not duplicate it, but creating a new profile on this machine seems to solve the problem. I'll reopen the bug if I can repro it on multiple profiles/machines. Thanks for your time.
