Description

15 years ago
I set up an Intranet homepage on my PC. I have the following links on my HTML page:
- To a text file on a network server using
file://///server/directory/directory/file.txt. 
- To a directory on my PC using file://///pc-name/directory
Both links can be accessed properly when I load the page from my local disc.

Then I check in the page to the intranet server. Access is then through https:
But then both links above do not work any more, with no error message.

This is done on purpose.  There is a security violation if we allow websites to
access local files.  Yes we need an error message for this.  We're working on it
in bug 84128
