User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140103004002 Steps to reproduce: I tried to validate https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ with W3C HTML Validator ( http://validator.w3.org/ ). Actual results: I saw at the errors list that there is an "a" tag whose "href" attribute contain the & sybmol (line 242) three times. Expected results: The & symbol should be replaced with & .

I believe this query string (?esab=a&s=silent+download&r=0&as=s) was automatically appended to the URL when the page author (or someone) searched the article on SUMO. So it's not necessary. Actually I have omitted the query string from the same link in Tabzilla's Update Bar (Bug 935719). I'll send a PR to remove it.
