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 I have an HTML file that I would like to link to a local file (users use remote desktops to connect to a shared server so this should work from their systems). This link works fine under Netscape 4 but since we have migrated to Mozilla 1.4, it doesn't work. The HTML file is located here: http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/it/itaids/wp/004/ The link in question is the one to "Public Domain Clipart Collection" (will only work for those running from the server) and here is a snippet of the code: You can use your web browser to browse through the <a href="file:///opt/clipart/pdclips/index.html">Public Domain Clipart Collection</a> at any time or print the catalog pages. I have confirmed that this code still works fine from Netscape 4, however Mozilla 1.4 simply ignores me when I click on the link. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Actual Results: People running X sessions from the server do not have local files indicated in HTML files open. Instead nothing at all happens when the link is clicked. Expected Results: People running X sessions from the server should have the link indicated in this line open: <a href="file:///opt/clipart/pdclips/index.html">Public Domain Clipart Collection</a>
Allowing such linking has the potential to open a variety of security bugs, which is why it's not allowed. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 84128 ***
