Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Something is causing my query search [javascript] -[php] votes:0 is:question to turn into javascript -php votes:0 is:question after signing in.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Make sure you are not connected
  • Search for any query containing tags (still not connected)
  • On the results page, click log in
  • Connect via any(?) of the possibilities (I used Gmail (I was already signed in on Gmail (just in case that matters (sorry for the nested parenthesis))))
  • Check if your query was properly escaped
  • Open a bug report on meta
  • Have your question closed as a dupe of Improper query escaping in the return URL after logging in

Comparing the two URLs:

http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=[javascript]+-[php]+votes%3A0+is%3Aquestion
http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=javascript+-php+votes:0+is:question

The return URL:

http://stackoverflow.com/users/login?returnurl=%2fsearch%3fq%3djavascript%2b-php%2bvotes%3a0%2bis%3aquestion

Also, I didn't tag this SO since I believe it happens on all sites
