User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 Steps to reproduce: 1. Install the latest Firefox ESR on Debian Stable (Firefox version: 60.2.2esr, Debian version: 9.5) 2. Click on 'TOP SITES' > '+ Add Top Site' 3. Introduce a local html file like, for example: 3.1. Title: python3 doc 3.2. URL: file:///usr/share/doc/python3.5/html/index.html 4. save it 5. the file has been added to the 'TOP SITES' list. Actual results: now we get an error if we click on the link, which we just created. (screenshot1) if we look at the address bar the ':' has been removed from the address, and the address has been changed to file///usr/share/doc/python3.5/html/index.html if we click on 'edit' to see what has happend to address, we see this address in the URL section, http://file:///usr/share/doc/python3.5/html/index.html Expected results: it should open the address correctly, without modifying it.
adding files to top sites is not supported but we could do a better job of reporting the error

(In reply to Tim Spurway [:tspurway] from comment #1) > adding files to top sites is not supported but we could do a better job of > reporting the error If this is the case, a frequently opened html file shouldn't also be *automatically* added to the TOP SITES. But it will be added. I have frequently opened this Python3 html file with Firefox and it has been added *automatically* to the TOP SITES. But it is also not working. Nothing happens when I click on it.
Hi, I would like to work on this. Can someone assign this to me?
