User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031030 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031030 Given an HTML mail message containing a link with a file-scheme URL containing a Windows-style UNC pathname, the Open Link in New Window and Open Link in New Tab context-menu commands do not open the link (no window or tab is created, and neither does any existing tab or window even get raised). This happens even for a valid URL (one that works when pasted into a Navigator window address box). The URL was of the form "file:///\\Fileserver\dir\...\file.ext". (The literal (quoted-printable-encoded) message source was: ... <a href=3D"file:///\\Fileserver3\documents\administration\personnel\performa= nce_management\performance_plan.dot">\\Fileserver3\documents\administrati= on\personnel\performance_management\performance_plan.dot</a> ... The literal URL was: file:///\\Fileserver3\documents\administration\personnel\performance_management\performance_plan.dot ) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Right click on the link in the mail message. 2. In the context menu, select the Open Link in New Window or the Open Link in New Tab command. 3. Notice that nothing happens. Actual Results: Nothing. Expected Results: Opening a new window or tab. (Even if the link's URL was invalid, Mozilla should have opened a new window or tab and left the original URL in the address bar, e.g., for further editing by the user.)
