I see the same encoding of tilde as %7E when web links of different types 
are activated in Acrobat, whether inserted in FM or in Acrobat (regular 
links or JavaScript actions). But regardless of this encoding, the links 
are resolved properly. It seems, therefore, that the problem is related to 
the specific addresses or target servers.
