I tried to add an URL - http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=FIRE - to a node but after pasting it from Firefox it is changed to http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s?%3FIRE
This happens to every equal sign in every URL I tried.

I'm using VUE on Linux. To be specific Ubuntu 9.04 with
java version "1.6.0_10"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_10-b33)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.0-b15, mixed mode, sharing)

Kind regards

Thanks, we're aware of this problem and hope to have the fix in our next release.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Hey Mike,

Do you guys have any workarounds for the = signs in the resources? Or do you know when this will exist in a future version? I am using Modrewrite to compensate for now.

Yep..there are workarounds with the htaccess like

# Add trailing slash
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/[^\.]+[^/]$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}/$1/ [R=301,L]

You just have to remove the "/" and use the "=" instead...not sure if i got the question right however...
I have tried this on different resources...
