How to have Firefox convert %20 back to spaces for a plugin?
Posted on 2008-06-13
I have an internal webpage that was setup with links to many pdf files by someone a while back. The file names of the pdfs have spaces between the names. Example: http://mysite.com/pdfs/big car.pdf
If these links are opened in IE, they resolve just fine with %20 in the spaces, the pdf opens fine: http://mysite.com/pdfs/big%20car.pdf
But if I use Firefox it resolves the name the same way but can't open the pdf in Adobe, I get 'page cannot be displayed'. I've been told that this is because Firefox can't convert the %20 back to a space when it goes to the adobe plug-in.
Anyone know how to fix Firefox so it can concert 420 back to spaces when sending to a plugin?
