Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.3a3pre) Gecko/20100303 Minefield/3.7a3pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.3a3pre) Gecko/20100303 Minefield/3.7a3pre

When I enter the specified URL in the location field, I see a strange character. It seems that FF is replacing the "%15" of the URL by some other character.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter URL: http://manuals.sybase.com/onlinebooks/group-as/asg1250e/sqlug/@ebt-link;pt=20741?target=%25N%15_21464_START_RESTART_N%25
2. Press ENTER
3. The weird character is displayed in the location field


Expected Results:  
I would expect firefox to keep display the original URL instead
