I don't know how come but I was able to get a donation even after AMO sent this base64.. chunk of data as being the purpose of the donation. * Attached image has the problem How to reproduce: * Go to my addon page: https://addons.mozilla.org/pt-BR/firefox/addon/10284 * Click donate * Check the problem * Feel free to donate ( optional but not required to check this bug : )
This is what we send to paypal for the problem addon: Location: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&&item_name=Contribui%C3%A7%C3%A3o+para+PinkTheme+Pink+Pack+&item_number=6ade21f323099145eb3392ae240353ea This is what we send for Threadbubble, which has no problems: Location: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&item_name=Contribution+for+ThreadBubble&item_number=b3cfa16d6ab0e360360805626976d891 (I took out the unimportant parts.) Notice the unicode escaping for the PinkTheme item_name since I went to Paypal from /pt-BR/. I'm guessing that's where Paypal is dying since it works fine for en-US (PinkTheme looks fine when going from en-US). I'd like to believe that we're doing the right thing with that URL encoding and Paypal is just dumb, since that would support my grand worldview. Can anyone confirm?
Pinged some info about this bug to the paypal feedback forms channel.
