NT-Server URLs without file:/ are handled incorrectly
<html> <head> </head> <body> <a href="\\ntserver\path\file.doc">link</a> </body> </html> In IE it works fine, but Mozilla adds this URL to the current location. www.somewhere.com --> www.somewhere.com/\\ntserver\path\file.doc
That's not a properly formed URL... URLs aren't file paths. It's a nonstandard Microsoftism that such system-specific things work in MSIE; local files are supposed to be accessed by "file:" URLs, and the backslashes changed to forward slashes to suit the proper URL (URI) syntax.

The correct format for the link should be: file://///ntserver/path/file.doc *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 66194 ***

URI fixup handles some use inputed \'s, but HREFS should have correct URLs.
