User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 When receiving an message with a full path (drive, directory, and filename (Well, drive is probably all that matters)) specified in the Microsoft format (drive:\folder\filename.ext) Mozilla turns the text into a link. Clicking the link though, will pop up an error dialog saying "drive is not a registered protocol". This is a little strange to me because, being a Microsoft filename there are \ instead of /, and there is only one after the drive letter, as opposed to c:\\ or c:// (I'm thinking http://, ftp://, etc). But I'm not familar with the official standard, just what I've observed from using various programs. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Send mail to yourself and include "C:\Windows\Win.ini" in the message. 2. Get your mail. 3. Open the message 4. Click the link in the message. Actual Results: An error message pops up saying "C is not a registered protocol." Expected Results: The prefered result is Mozilla opening C:\Windows\Win.ini as it would if you openned a browser window and typed "C:\Windows\Win.ini" into the address/URL bar. (Which on my machine displays the file as text in a browser window.) An alternate result is that the link isn't highlighted.
