#32112 closed defect (fixed)

Escaping & character creates weird string

For #31286 we committed new strings such as

<!ENTITY torPreferences.viewLogs "View Logs&#x2026;">

When pulling the translated strings that suddenly mutated to

<!ENTITY torPreferences.viewLogs "View Logs&amp;#x2026;">

We should figure out a way where the & actually gets preserved because otherwise users are seeing the second string literally.

This bug might be responsible for XML parsing errors too, which I am seeing in the browser console.

I wonder, if &#x2026; is ellipsis, why we don't use the actual ellipsis … ?

Not sure in the English source, but at least in Spanish the text is utf-8 i think.

The Spanish translation has an ellipsis to test, see:
