Copy URL command unexpectedly encodes "/" as "%2F" #2939
Storage Explorer Version: 1.13.0
In previous versions of Storage Explorer, Copy URL returned a URL like this:
However, in 1.13.0, COPY URL returns a URL with encoded slashes like this:
For many file types, this isn't an issue. But if I paste the encoded URL into a browser window, some files don't open properly, such as HTML files generated by Adobe Animate CC.
Steps to Reproduce
The file opens and performs as expected.
The file opens with errors or missing components.
This bug was originally reported by @egdedudette.
I just saw this today after updating Storage Explorer.
I can confirm that if I navigate via the Azure Portal (portal.azure.com) to the same container/file and use the "Copy" to clipboard icon - that there are NO URL encoding of slashes to
The storage account is being accessed using normal RBAC via Storage Explorer and not a SAS.
Glad it has been identified. It's a big pain.
@egdedudette We understand the inconvenience this problem has caused, and we're working on a solution. We will need some time to run tests to make sure we don't break anything, because a lot of different parts rely on the code where the URL comes from.
@jasongaylord As a workaround, are you able to replace the %2F encodings with slashes manually and get a working URL?
@jasongaylord you can download 1.13.1 from the "Releases" tab in this repo. We just released the bits there. If you prefer being prompted to upgrade, you will need to wait for at least another day for the bits on Microsoft download center to be propagated to all data centers before you see the prompt.
