Bug report #21700
Encoding for User name authentication when using http(s) protocol for vector layers

Many https services use email address as a user name. This cannot be used directly in QGIS as the "@" character not properly encoded when sent to the server
For example the user name "[email protected]" must be entered as "dave%40phased.co.uk" to work. This is not very user friendly.
I suspect the same is true for the password field.
