I have a some long URLs that do not seem to present correctly. And iirc, the link termination /a was ignored, and so text after the link got included. Let's see what happens with this example

Yeah, it's showing exactly what I was seeing. In fact, I see that it has also messed up the links for "You have this problem", "unfollow", and perhaps other links.

I'm not sure why.
- too long?
- does like "ftp" lin the link?
- it's a DL link and doesn't point to a web page?

The URL, in chopped up form is
http:
//ftp.mozilla.org/
pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/try-builds/
bienvenu@nventure.com-96f10f9f2e8b
/try-win32/thunderbird-8.0a1.en-US.win32.zip

Or use this tinyurl http://preview.tinyurl.com/3q8gkcw

Hey Wayne. Thanks for reporting this. I have been able to reproduce this using a url that does not have ftp and is not a download link, so I suspect it's the length that's causing the issue. I'm having a hard time nailing down the number of URL characters that would cause the issue. I'll continue to investigate, and thanks so much for your additional insights.

Hi Wayne! We wanted to let you know that this looks like it is working fine now from our end. If you don't mind checking and seeing if you still see the issue, that would be fantastic.

Thanks!
Jenn
