(I originally reported this issue upstream at
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=519008 -- as requested, I'm now
filing it here.)

If I open a PDF file with spaces in the file name through Firefox, it downloads
successfully, but Okular claims not to be able to open it. This seems to be
because the file has a name like "file with spaces.pdf", but Okular wants to
open "file%20with%20spaces.pdf". Here's a 100% reproduceable test case:

[From another comment on the upstream bug]
Looks like the wrong method of KUrl or QUrl is being used (the method which
just throws away the file:// instead of the one which converts to a file name
