The identical URL, pasted into the URL box at the top, works fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Create a web page with a link to a "file:..." type URL. HTML files duplicate this bug fine. 2.Create the file under the URL. 3.Open the page and click the link. Actual Results: Nothing happened. Expected Results: Should have opened the file under the link.
Do you load the Html document with the file:// links with file://blah/foo.html or from a webserver : http://blah/foo.html ? If from a webserver : Why didn't you read the release notes before you filed this bug ?
As I stated, the URL specifies a resource identifier of "file." A little civility would also be appreciated here...
Matti: Thanks. That is indeed the culprit. I also downloaded Moz 1.3 and verified it there. Is there a way I can override this, at least for specific URLs? It causes an interoperability problem for Swiki (at least for the way some of my colleagues use it.) Cheers, - Steve.
yes, read the 1.3 Release notes (http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.3/ ) under the security section (or search with "checkloaduri" ) -> invalid We have a bug about a better error message (and not only in the Console) and also about allowing file:// links.
everyone be nice, please. If you did not see bug 122022 when searching, please let me know what you searched for.
