Bug Description

When saving favorite from Firefox the title displayed in the launcher contains unescaped characters when it shouldn't. The title in /tmp/webfav/webfav.desktop is correct so it appears to be a rendering issue.

Just go to nytimes.com and press the heart icon in firefox. Then you'll see the following in the launcher:
"The New York Times - Breaking News; World News&Multimedia"

I will attached screenshot

Could you report karmic bugs with "ubuntu-bug netbook-launcher"? I'd like to get the package version for tracking purposes; we had a similar bug with encoding recently

Color me confused. Did we not get the last bug fix out the door?

I'm still seeing this in Lucid. It seems to be a duplicate of bug #425467 , is that right?

@Jason: can you check if this issue can still occur with the new unity code base?
