I had this error a long time ago with another site.  At the time I had a zip
drive (IDE) that was active in my BIOS, but disabled in Windows.  After
disabling it in the BIOS the error went away.

Reporter: what is your current system setup like?

The error i'm receiving

I get this error when i visit the page.
I don't see these errors, and I doubt this is a Firefox bug.  I'd resolve
invalid, but I don't have a Windows Server 2003 box to test this on, so I'll
leave it open for now.

I saved the page to disk and i still received the error, so i started hacking up
the html till i could find the trouble spot. I believe its with these image refs:

<img alt=""
align="right" height="48" width="1">

note the file:/// reference.
Let me guess, J: is a zip drive?

For your consideration:;EN-US;Q330137;en-us;304776

I don't think this is a firefox bug.

OK. i just checked and I do have a j: drive as part of my removable device drive
and its removeable so thats probably it. The website has references to a local
drive and I have that local drive so I guess its prompting me for the file.

Sorry about the confusion. Is there a better way to handle this? I guess i just
dont understand the prompt. I would expect a broken link but if its outside the
realm of firefox I guess there isnt much you can do.

One more note. I hate IE so I dont like making comparisons but it doenst have
this behavior. I dont get a prompt.
Ok.  It's a bug that pages can reference file:// urls at all.  The error message
you got is a WinXP/2003 error.
