I also tried "file://///" as generated by Macromedia but it fails too. Firefox simply does nothing. It can be a DOC, PDF, or a folder. It's also impossible to "open link in new tab". Jules is a network server that is accessible locally. All works well with Internet Explorer. The page is served by the HTTP server of Tomcat 5. Thanks Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. click on the link 2. 3. Actual Results: nothing Expected Results: open the related document, for example a PDF file, or open Word with the DOC file. I am developing the corporate intranet site. And we have some pages with lots of simple links on documents (DOC, PDF, XLS, etc). It works with IE but not with Firefox.
