Start page and upper case letters

Posted

If my firefox start page name is e.g. "http:/world.com/WeAreTheWorld.htm" it doesn't work, because firefox is starting with "http:/world.com/wearetheworld.htm". All upper case letters are moved to lower case letters. The bookmark routine of firefox doesn't have this issue. I think that is a bug of firefox whish should be fixed.

I don't think it matters if a link has capital letters or not.

Hello Hans,

Would you please take a look at this :

https://wiredimpact.com/blog/never-use-capital-letters-urls/

And :

https://moz.com/blog/15-seo-best-practices-for-structuring-urls
(number 13)

I'm not sure what happens in your case :

When you enter a URL with upper case, it takes you to the right page ? When Firefox changes those characters to lower case; it takes you to a different page ?

What happens when you use a different browser ?
