In file menu, select "Send a link to page" This opens a compose window in Thunderbird. Thunderbird is configured to send mail in plain text. Send the mail. Read the mail and click on the link. The bug is that the link does not work because the exclamation mark is not made part of the link. (Well, in that precise case, you get the page as Wikipedia has a redirection, but that misses the point.) I do not know if the but is in Firefox or Thunderbird. Perhaps the link should be URL-encoded by Firefox. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: See above Actual Results: The link does not contain the "!" Expected Results: The link contains the "!"
I assume you are using TB 2.0.0.x? There no such problem in Thunderbird trunk at least TB3a1 works fine.
Confirmed with Thunderbird version 126.96.36.199 (20080421) Linux i686 — “!” at the end of a link is not wikified.
