Summary0004262: Html entities escaped twice in links on web mail

I got a report from a user that a link was broken when reading his email with sogo.

Steps To Reproduce
  • someone sends you an email containing a link, with the latter consisting of properly escaped reserved symbol(s). Something like:
    <a href="...&..."

  • as you open the email with Sogo Web Client, the & will be escaped again
    <a href="...&amp;..."

  • the browser will correctly revert one of these leaving the user with
    <a href="...&..."

Which depending on the website may or may not do the right thing.

Additional Information

Note: Not 100% sure if there isn't anything else in the email that would trigger the bug. I experienced it by:

  • open my gmail account, go to -> personal info -> emails -> alternate emails -> add email
  • open the verification email from the web client and observe the issue
TagsNo tags attached.

Hmm, the bug tracker actually ate my entities..

Here is the original text, maybe somebody can edit the issue meaningfully somehow?
