Bug#247132: viewurl-mozilla.sh or licq strips the url pressed in dialog
when I click on URL in the dialog box a new browser window appears and loads the web page. However, if URL contains encoded space e.g. http://www.host.com/funny%20pictures/ the last part of URL separated by space is lost.
I examined /usr/bin/viewurl-mozilla.sh and noticed that it looks up only at the first script argument -- $1 and discards the rest. That means that licq decodes the URL and does not escape spaces, i.e. one URL becomes broken into two parameters.
I suggest that licq would put quotation marks ("") around URL upon passing the decoded URL to the script, in this case the spaces would not be lost.
