DUPE of bug 122022 Bug 122022 [ISSUE] file:// URLs in a http | https page do not work (clicking does nothing, do not auto-load, etc.) [dupe to bug 84128] and as I see from bug 84128#c20 you also need a pref to bypass a security check, since linking from a webserver to a local file is supposed to be a risk. user_pref("security.checkloaduri", false);
Summary: drive link problem → drive link problem
