User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1 Build ID: 20120614114901 Steps to reproduce: I entered a URL that has escape characters in the address bar (for example http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mozilla.org) Actual results: The URL didn't get unescaped; instead, Firefox tried to add a "www." prefix, which means it didn't recognize the HTTP protocol prefix at all. And the error page "server not found" is returned and load. Expected results: The URL should've been unescaped to "http://www.mozilla.com" and the Mozilla website homepage should be loaded.
Of course, when reproducing the problem, after typing the URL "enter" must be pressed to start loading the page.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:16.0) Gecko/16.0 Firefox/16.0 (20120703041519) No "www." nor anything else was appended to the string in the latest Nightly, but it wasn't escaped either. The same behavior is available in Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer. None of these browsers un-escape the link. Abdul, if you want Firefox to do this differently, please reopen the bug and mark is as an enhancement.
