when typing in "?" into the url bar how do you stop everything from being converted to lowercase? like "/watch?v=XxXx" becomes invalid "/watch?v=xxxx". thanks.

firefox converts links to lowercase that have "?".

windows cant have filenames that contain ":" "/" "?". so i put japanese ":" "/" "?" in filenames to replace.

so metadata for a youtube download can have the link.

example; "youtube.com/watch?v=XxXxXxXxXxX" can be written as; "youtube.com/watch?v=XxXxXxXxXxX"

if i enter "youtube.com/watch?v=XxXxXxXxXxX", into firefox it works fine. but if i enter "youtube.com/watch?v=XxXxXxXxXxX", the question marks causes everything to go lowercase. so it becomes "youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxxxxx".

so requesting firefox to keep letters as they are. even after converting "?" to "?" in links.

please help, anyone.
