I am trying to get this command to work

"C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition\firefox.exe" -url "C:\page.html?parameter=hi"

this results in firefox navigating to file:///C:/page.html%3Fparameter=hi

I have to manually change the %3F to ? to get it to work. I noticed everything works fine when navigating to a web based url with js parameters. It only seems to be local file problem. Can someone point me to a solution?
