When I click on the Facebook link for this question it gives a link like this:

http://http%3A%2F%2Fstackoverflow.com%2Fq%2F5262039%2F213725/

Does anybody experience a similar problem?

This is simply the encoded URL in the Facebook sharing querystring.

http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=http%3a%2f%2fstackoverflow.com%2fq%2f5608131%2f1&t=Wijmo+Dialog+Feature+visible+problems

In the actual sharing on Facebook it will be correct:

isn't this about the double http in http://http%3A%2F%2F, that apparently shows after clicking that link? (Still then, I guess that is a Facebook error then, unless FB wants the links without the http:// prefix, or unless FB does not recognize the encoded %3A%2F%2F and then prefixes http:// itself? I'm not using FB, so cannot test.) –  Arjan Apr 10 '11 at 15:45
    
(If FB does —or did— not recognize the %3A%2F%2F then that is their fault too, of course.) –  Arjan Apr 10 '11 at 15:53
