Question: automator - display webpages - high sierra

When a URL containing a question mark, for example http://scholar.google.com.au/scholar?q="test", is passed to the Display Webpages action in Automator it is converted as follows:


Sierra (10.12.6) - https://scholar.google.com.au/scholar?q=%22test%22


High Sierra (10.13.1) - https://scholar.google.com.au/scholar%3Fq=%22test%22


The former works, but the latter fails because scholar.google does not recognise %3F.


Is there any workaround for this with High Sierra?


Thanks

Answer:
Answer:

I just did a workaround by calling Safari from a bash script in the Run Shell Script action with pass input as arguments:


scholar='http://scholar.google.com.au/scholar?q="'"$1"'"'

open -a safari "$scholar"
