Description Robert Bruce Park 2015-12-18 22:29:48 UTC
Hi, in latest Ubuntu Xenial, I am experiencing the following behavior:

$ xdg-open 'http://example.com/?foo&bar'

The page that opens in the browser is simply 'http://example.com/?foo'

This is with xdg-utils package 1.1.0~rc3+git20150907-1ubuntu3

It's not clear to me if this is a duplicate of https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=44046 which sounds related, but is also 4 years old, and I definitely have not been experiencing this issue for the last 4 years.

Let me know if there's any other information I can provide to debug, thanks.

This does not seem to be happening with current version. I checked the differents paths and didn't find anything relevant.
