Mozilla browser won't open a link to a resource on a samba server

If you type "file://///mysambaserver/path/file.ext" in the addressbar, the file
\\sambaserver\path\file.ext will open correctly. But if a link to such a file is
made on a web page with an <a href> tag, nothing happens when you click on the link.

The link is well understood by mozilla, since it appears purple, so it is
considered as a visited link. An if you copy the link address, paste it into the
address bar and hit enter, the file will be opened normally.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define such a link
2. Click on it
3. Wait forever

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens

Expected Results:  
The file should be opened by the browser

"checkloaduri" )
