Ancestry.com Broken Citation Source Links

If anyone uses ancestry.com, are you having issues pasting citation sources from familysearch.com?

I just noticed all the source citations I researched last night did not copy/paste properly. When copied into ancestry.com, the URLs/links get scrambled. At first it appears correct, but if re-opened, its all scrambled and will not work. An error code from ancestry will appear. I am using Chrome Browser and even cleared cookies/cached data and still.

When pasting link directly to a blank Chrome page it works fine, must be issue with ancestry.

Example:

This

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:939L-QB9X-9B?i=94&wc=3JF8-ZNR%3A172172701%2C172172702%2C172172703&cc=1874591

gets turned to this:

https%3a%2f%2fwww.familysearch.org%2fark%3a%2f61903%2f3%3a1%3a939L-QB9X-9B%3fi%3d94%26wc%3d3JF8-ZNR%253A172172701%252C172172702%252C172172703%26cc%3d1874591

Any ideas?

For those who use ancestry, I just reached out to them and they are having issues with hyperlinks not posting correctly. They said they are "on it"

I began using the "Other Information" box to post links for now till the issue is solved. It is above the "Web Address" box if this helps.

I sourced at least 50-60 links last night from familysearch.com and the hyperlinks are all broken. This is disappointing.
