This is a 2 part bug:

  1. We're being a little overaggressive escaping URIs to avoid i8n domain name fishing, and the brackets containing the IPv6 address are getting escaped
  2. Firefox doesn't recognize the escaped IPv6 address and freaks out. (the truncation doesn't happen with Safari)

I'll see about working around escaping IPv6 address part of the URIs.

(In [25145]) Don't escape the characters 'and?' for IPv6 addresses. Refs #11031.

(In [25146]) Merging r25145 into the 1.3 branch. Fixes #11031.
