User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 I've noticed a problem with the newer versions (not sure when it started) of Mozilla that causes links to local directories to fail when the index file they're in is served by a web server. Example: in my home network, my web server is on my FreeBSD machine, and my main index pages are handled for all of my systems by that machine. There's a link in there to file://localhost/d:/jdg/ (among others). This works fine if I type it into the address bar, or use a bookmark in Mozilla. However....when that same address is served by the web server (or any other web server I have write access to), it does nothing.... Middle-click doesn't open the link in a new tab. Right-click menus to open it in a new tab or new window do nothing. No error messages, etc...but also no new tab/window. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create an HTML index file with a link to, e.g., file://localhost/d:/dirname/ 2. Put that file on a web server and load from the server. 3. Click on the link. Nothing happens. Use right-click menu, middle-click, etc....nothing happens. Actual Results: Nothing. No new page, no error, etc. Expected Results: Open the link to the directory as it would if the index file were on the local drive, and as it used to do regardless.
