Hello mailing list,

a warm hello from Frankfurt.

I am first time using this mailing list, so I hope I do everything the right way. I appreciate
any help, thank you.
(I don't even know if that is a server problem I am facing)

I am experiencing an issue with our website
If you go to the website and right click on any navigation item and select "copy link" and
paste this link (#1) into a new browser tab, the page will open.
If you stay on that page, copy the URL that is now displayed within the same browser tab,
paste this link (#2) again into another or same browser tab, the page gives me a 404.

If you take link #1 and #2 next to each other is exactly the same link.

Same effect: just open any page on the website and click in the browser's URL bar, and just
hit enter. It gives you a 404.

As you can see, the page uses chinese characters also in the URLs.
Before the relaunch, it worked well on the same server with the same wordpress CMS.

The only thing I found out:
When copy the link from the HTML page itself, the Link looks like that (with lowercase letters):
if I copy it from the browser bar, it looks like that:

Hope anyone has an idea what that might be and how to fix that?

Best regards,
