Pasting them into the toolbar works, though. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a small web page which contains a file URL like this: <a href="file:C:\Some\Dir\some%20file.doc">file:C:\Some\Dir\some%20file.doc</a> Firefox will automatically convert the URL into a valid format (as you can see in the status bar). 2. Open the page and click on the URL. Nothing will happen! 3. Right-Click on the URL, select "Copy Link Location" 4. Paste the URL into the toolbar. 5. Press Return -> Word will start. 6. Paste the URL into the web page. 7. Open the web page again 8. Click on the URL. Nothing will happen! Actual Results: Clicking on file:/// links has no effect whatsoever. Expected Results: It should open the file.
