Latest Commit: Version Fixed In: v1.1

Description squan 2011-01-20 22:06:59 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.95) 
OS:                Linux

When dragging a link URL from akregator to a rekonq window or to konqueror in webkit mode then special characters in the URL get interpreted in a way that the browsers cannot follow the link (e.g. a '%23' in the link shows up as '#' in the browser).

With konqueror in khtml mode and midori this is no problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1 switch konqueror to webkit
2 drag a link from akregator and drop in the browser window

Actual Results:  
"404 Not Found" error
