I can't get a webpage to link using this code that works in IE <a 
href="file:///c:/">c:/</a>

When the webpage is posted the server the link does nothing at all, it should

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
