Not tested with IE. is there a way to enforce strict respect of html encoding ? some about:config option ? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. put the previous url or any string with "&isin" in some html file 2. open in Firefox 3. see it replaces by "∈"
This is the correct behavior per HTML spec (and safari's doing the same thing is not an accident). The set of characters that terminate named entities in HTML is _much_ larger than just ';', and in particular '=' is in the set.

And the right way to write that url is using "&isin="
