dupe of Bug 187930?
Seems not to be a duplicate of bug 187930! I passed wrong information: The path is already with correct slashes: "/" as suggested with bug 187930 So I pass <img src="F:/path-to-image/image.gif"> with correct slashes. I don't use "\". This information in the origin message was wrong. Sorry for that. The system used runs under windows XP. The misbehaviour appears only if I add a drive id like C: or F: and use a full path. The IE works properly and accepts full path with drive id. This problem occurs in mozilla and in firefox. Is there any solution for that? I have already tried to put "file://" and "http://" in front of the path, but then the browser does not find the image because he seems not to handle the path properly as well.
Some more informations: If I enter a windows path directly into the URL-field of the browser, i.e.: F:\Internet\WWW\cms\cms\upload\productmgmt\images\staticdata\status_active.gif with windows slahes "\" in the path, this path is converted by firefox and mozilla automatically to file:///F:/Internet/WWW/cms/cms/upload/productmgmt/images/staticdata/status_active.gif Result: the image is shown properly ==> no problem, correct behaviour! As far as I use unix like slashes "/" in the path, i. e. F:/Internet/WWW/cms/cms/upload/productmgmt/images/staticdata/status_active.gif firefox reports an error in a pop window: f is not a registered protocol So, as far as I understand, this is a misbehaviour in firefox and mozilla. If the first characters are not interpretable as a protocol (like http: or file:) and the first character is alphabetic from A to Z followed by a doubledot (":"), this should be interpreted as a file and should be shown in the same way like with the other slashes (\). I tested this with other files (i. e. textfile) ==> same misbehaviour I hope, this will help You.
This is not a misbehavior, this is correct. See 269166 comment 2. This is invalid.
