URL containing special characters is displayed unescaped in the address line but when it is copied from the address line to clipboard special character are escaped with percents e.g."letters and spaces" becomes ... 0spaces%22. Is there a way do disable this and copy URL unescaped? The only configuration option I found - network.standard-url.escape-utf8, controls escaping of national non-ascii characters but not the ascii special characters like spaces or quotation marks.

Wonder if you could do that with a bookmarlet?
Pulls the current page URL but does so without "safely" encoding (URL encoding) it?

Note that if you don't select the entire URL, it is left unchanged.

Sample: http://example/test.php?p=(28999)+999+999

If you copy the entire URL, you get, http://example/test.php?p=%28999%29+999+999.
If you leave out the 'h' when you make your copy, ttp://example/test.php?p=(28999)+999+999, you get, ttp://example/test.php?p=(28999)+999+999.
