Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2

At the company I work for, I am pushing Mozilla forward, since I get crazy of
updates. Everything goes OK, except the intranet. As you can imagine this is
quite important.

The intranet links to files like this: file:///m:/list/list.xls

Mozilla then says "Security Error: Content at url may not load or link to
file:///something" which is correct, but unwanted for me. 

To install Mozilla is simple (Terminal Server), but making an user.js for
everyone is annoying. 

So far I don't know of a better solution than is said here:
http://www.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla1.5/known-issues.html. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Mozilla
2. Go to a page that links to a local file.
3.

Actual Results:  
Got a Security error.

Expected Results:  
Open the file.

Major problem for using Mozilla in our organisation.
