Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It's a minor one.

I see this in Windows 7 32-Bit, using FireFox 10.0.2 (unsupported?).

No repro on Win7 64-Bit, FF 10.0.2. Or perhaps I'm not looking at the same page? I see the one on the left screenshot, not the right. – Shawn Chin Feb 21 '12 at 14:35
@ShawnChin, click on the permalink "chain" icon (4th icon below the "2") – tombull89 Feb 21 '12 at 14:37

Of course, silly me. Confirm repro with FF 10.0.2 on Win 7 and Ubuntu 11.10. – Shawn Chin Feb 21 '12 at 14:39
Confirmed on Chrome Canary 19.0.1047.0, Chrome 17.0.956.3, IE 9 all on Windows 7 64-bit. I think we're reasonably certain it's a double-escaping issue :) – Ryan O'Hara Feb 21 '12 at 15:33
For linking purposes, there's a similar issue when rolling back. – Tim Stone Feb 21 '12 at 16:03
I can see this also with Safari 5.1.3 running on Mac OS X 10.7.3. – kiamlaluno Feb 21 '12 at 17:01
