Bug Description

Looks like URLs returned by the 'Search Google' plugin are URL-encoded and thus 'broken' when you try and access them.

Searching for 'gnome-do forums' for example, results in a hit and returns the following URL:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php%3Ft%3D381039

The above URL when accessed obviously won't work due to the URL-encoding of the question-mark and equals sign. The correct URL, as reported by Google, is:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=381039
