Default aparat.com video page link support and filename error

this website aparat.com is the iranian equivalent of youtube.
it seems that a rudimentary support for it was added to jdownloader.

but there are some issues with it.
first a feature request:
support to go to video page from "open in browser" menu item in jdownloader.
right now it opens the direct video file in browser instead of the page that video was hosted on.
so like this:
**External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

instead of this:
**External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

this causes the user to lose its video if aparat changes the addresses of hosted video before user downloads it (like me ,when I add links now but download them way later)

the same applies to copy url menu item.

the second issue is a bug in naming.
the link I provided gets this name in jdownloader:
"گفت‌وگوی جواد عامل، مدیر نقشه و مسیریاب نشان با زومیت"

the &zwnj is the Zero-width non-joiner character

it should have been:
""گفت*وگوی جواد عامل، مدیر نقشه و مسیریاب نشان با زومیت"

this maybe not easily fixable because I see it in copying from firefox to konsole app in linux, but maybe the plugin for aparat (or maybe in all jdownloader) can fix this with a workaround or maybe completely fix it in the library responsible for this.
copy from firefox to firefox doesnt have this issue.
also I can use persian input and put the correct character in jdownloader gui for filename manually and it renames correctly so it should not be a very hard issue. it just gets corrupted somewhere in the pipeline.
