In our intranet we refer to local sites using URLs like


Firefox refuses to resolve URLs of that type and simply does nothing. 
The only way I found to force firefox to display intranet sites is to 
change the URL to something preceded by file://///, for instance,

Reproducible: Always

You mean UNC ... please correct the summary.
See bug 70871 comment 13 for details of file://///host/path (you can also use
file:///\\host/path). Runs on your host "d1s12" a web server? If not, http:// is
incorrect and you have to use the file:/// syntax because you access a local
file and not a server document. Same for IE. Or do you mean file://host/path
(which works with IE)?
