But when you click it, Drupal redirects to:

Temporal workaround, create views with friendly URLs for pages you need, e.g. now each exposed filtered result has its own views page.

Can't come up with anything else since Drupal 'works this way'.


This is drupal core functionality that converts special correctors to string when using in toolbar shortcut menu.
