User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130605070403

Steps to reproduce:

* Navigate to a URL that ends in a period
* Single click URL in the URL bar, and copy it
* Paste it in an email (e.g. gmail) to be sent to a friend


Actual results:

The trailing period is not escaped, and gmail (as well as possibly other systems) will think the period is part of a sentence, not URL, making the URL invalid.


Expected results:

On copy, FF should have escaped the trailing period with %2E.
