I click on the link, try opening it in a new Window or Tab, but nothing happens. I can Copy the Link location, open a new window or tab, Choose Open Location, then paste it in, and it works fine. Link looks like: file://s:/... NOTE: When I save the HTML page our form generates (as complete web page), then open IT as a file, I can open the link no problem. When it is presented as dummy.cgi, It does not work. The page properties list it as type Text/html, with One link in the links tab. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Generate Web Page from our form 2. Attemp to click on link 3. Actual Results: Can not open highlited link, except by copying link location, then Ctrl-Shft-L, then Paste in location (which works no problem). I then view the Plain-Text file just fine. Expected Results: Opened the file in a New window by just clicking on it (the URL has a target tag). The HTML file created is pasted in below. Note it works when opened as a file, but when returned from a form of type POST, no such luck. I can attach the Perl daemon that created the page if required. HTML Follows: <html><head><title>LAUNCHED</title></head><body> Launched script, LogFile Output Should be in <a href="file:///S:/MR/REXTEAMCNO/BUILDLOGS/LOG1030382650.txt" target="1030382650"> S:/MR/REXTEAMCNO/BUILDLOGS/LOG1030382650.txt </a></body></html>
Maybe this is because a remote host is not allowed to link to a local file?
