The request above looks bizarre to me.

If the "jsessionid" was really a parameter in this URL, it would need to 
be after the "?", which is my understanding is what separates the URL 
part from the "query string" part.
Like this :

Maybe Firefox is smart enough to put things back together correctly 
before issuing the request to the server, and your other client program 
is not ?

You could find out by getting the "LiveHttpHeaders" add-on for Firefox, 
and see what Firefox really sends to the server.
It is anyway an extremely valuable tool to handle issues like this.

The other possibility would be to add something on the server side, that 
logs the real (complete, unparsed) request URL at the moment it comes in 
to the server, and check again how it looks like in each case.
