Custom query including & as start page

My start page custom query is

p1 & (overdue | 7 days), p2 & (overdue | 5 days), p3 & (overdue | 4 days), (overdue, 4days) & !p1 & !p2 & !p3, p1, p2, p3

But if I try to edit it from within chrome, it gets changed to

p1 & (overdue | 7 days), p2 & (overdue | 5 days), p3 & (overdue | 4 days), (overdue, 4days) & !p1 & !p2 & !p3, p1, p2, p3

and then will no longer work properly.

Hi Rob,

So you are trying to edit it within the Chrome extension, or from the main website using Chrome? Did you originally create this within Chrome?

Regards,
Brendon.

The same problem occurs within the chrome extension, and within the main website using Chrome. Yes, it was originally created within Chrome.

Rob,

I can't seem to reproduce this issue. The filter works fine, and when I edit it, it keeps it as it should, and continues to work. I assume you typed this out the first time you created it? You didn't copy and paste anything into the filter line?

Regards,
Brendon.

Yes, I typed it out. I've also tried copying and pasting it from a text editor. It saves ok and works. The problem occurs when I try to edit it later. Then all "&" become "&".

Just to check it was nothing silly, I changed my custom query to
p1 & p2
and it saved ok and worked. I then went back and clicked "edit" and it became
p1 & p2

So it replicates every time. I'm using chrome Version 32.0.1700.102 on ubuntu 64bit.
