Steps to reproduce

When this header is sent:
Location: http://business.medal.ladger.domain/marketing/всички-събития/

The url that this gets is:

Then the url is typed into the browser it works.

I think this started to occur after the last update, but I cannot be sure. Chrome and Mozilla don’t do this.

    • I know that standards state that Location header should be url encoded, but Chrome, Mozilla, AND Internet Explorer (surprise) read the header okay. Moreover after redirecting, in the address bar the location stays URL encoded instead of showing Cyrillic text.

      The typed URL stays in Cyrillic.

      Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of IE and Edge, but this is annoying.

    • Hey, sorry for the delay, was on vacation.

      Here is the link:
      It is super simple - it just sends a single header "Location: страница1". It doesn’t work for me.

      If you however open it manually:страница1/, it will work.
      It you url encode it beforehand it will work, but my point is that the other browsers deal with that better.
