OverbiteWX seems to mangle short urls
It seems that the OverbiteWX proxy add-on for Firefox mangles short URLs
presented in a gophermap file. I discovered this while updating links for
my IF Archive mirror at gopher://gopher.661.org/1/if-archive/. Everything
https://ifdb.tads.org now redirects to https://ifdb.org/.
hIFDB entry URL:https://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=s592isejad6u8mk5
But not this:
hIFDB entry URL:https://ifdb.org/viewgame?id=rf9tvr2cjqxbwdav
Instead what gets passed to Firefox is this:
A: Because it fouls the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
Q: What is the most annoying thing in e-mail?
