From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011014
BuildID:    2001101408

It's not possible to follow a link pointing to local or network mapped html file
using tag <a href="file:///V:/intranet/something.htm">link</A> 
It's OK to follow that type of link from locally opened html file, but not from
file opened from http server (apache). When the link is clicked nothing happens.
It doesnt work in Mozilla browser 0.9.3-5, it works OK in NN 4.5 and IE 5.5. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open page with containing a link pointing to local html file 
2.click the link
3.

Actual Results:  nothing happens when you click a link for example <a
href="file:///V:/intranet/something.htm">link</A>

Expected Results:  follow the link and open the file as it should be local html file
Take a look at the Javascript console.  This is a security feature to prevent
web sites from accessing file:// urls.

The bug this is a duplicate of has information on how to turn off this security
feature if you wish.
