Log In - destination is wrong

Hi, I have following difficulties in logging in trough "Ask question" button:

Here is how this happens:

Here is source code of the destination of the "Log in" -button

It seems that somehow the corrupted:

<a class="aui-button cq-login" href="/login.action?os_destination=%252Fquestions" tabindex="0">Log in</a>

 Any Ideas how to fix this? We are running Confluence 5.7 and Questions 1.1.47 on linux.

Finally got working work around:

#Fix invalid url in login trought Ask question -button.
AllowEncodedSlashes on
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/(.)questions$ /questions [R]

I have the same behaviour. Confluence is not running behind an Apache so that I don't see the possibility to put the rewrite code of Simo Suurla in any configuration file.

It is a really confusing behaviour.

Do I really have to configure an Apache to rewrite the mistaken url ?

Hmm.  Is the base url in Confluence set correctly?

It seems to be right.

Ok, that's the easy one confirmed, just needed to rule that out as a problem. Two more questions 1) Are you sure questions is installed and activated ok? Could you try https://conflu-test kela fi/questions and see if that does take you to questions (Note that I removed some dot from the url to avoid any robots picking it up and spamming you) 2) Are you running it behind Apache?

Yes, I think installation is fine because everything else is working. If I am logged in already there is no problem. Yes, we are running this behind Apache. But I have not noticed this kind any ware in Confluence before.

Ahh, that's not quite what I was going for, but I have seen problems with redirects in Apache doing that. I think I found it was a broken redirect when I ran into it, but I'm sure there were other ways to configure apache to get it wrong!

ProxyPass / http://localhost:8090/ ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8090/ #also tried this but did not help.. Redirect /%2Fquestions </VirtualHost>
