Since Firefox 9 and a fairly recent version of Seamonkey, by default the urlbar stupidly displays a space in place of %20.
I believe you can find the option to disable this somewhere in the preferences, but it's just as easy to do it this way:

As usual, the upgrade included cosmetic changes that suck. To restore the mutilated URLs in the navigation bar, go to about:config, find “browser.URLbar.trim.URLs” and toggle it off...


EDIT
sorry - I guess I should have posted in the Howto section - can someone move it please?

This one doesn't seem to be in my Seamonkey (2.12.1)'s about:config lineup, and I haven't tried adding it. The browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled setting you mentioned in another topic alongside the above setting, however, is. Smile

Forgot to set both in my FF 15.0.1 install on this (same) system, though, so I'll go do that now. Very Happy

Oh, you're right Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
Adding it doesn't work in Seamonkey - I posted at work, where I don't have Seamonkey.
How could they do this to us Question Exclamation
