STR: 1. Enter file:///home/<username> in the address bar 2. Click on one of links to subdirectories, like 'Documents' Expected results: The browser attempts to load file:///home/<username>/Documents, and that loads successfully. Actual results: The browser attempts to load file:///home/Documents (note the absence of the '<username>' segment), which fails. This is a recent regression.
I saw this the other day as well. Loading file:///home/<username>/ (with the trailing slash) works as expected, I think.
Indeed, the trailing slash makes a difference. Good catch!
I'm quite sure this is a duplicate of bug 1232287. Resolved in Firefox 46.
