links referring to pdf documents in local directories e.g.
<a href="file:///D:/SynPat_pdf/61/978/appl.pdf" target=viewpdf>test<img
src=/images/pdf_15_16.gif alt=pdf height=16 width=15 border=0></a>

If I copy the address to the location bar it opens the pdf file properly
I tested it in Internet Explorer as well and in Internet explorer it opens the
pdf directly from the link.

Reproducible: Always

1.make a html file with a reference to a local pdf file <a href="file:///...">
2.open the html file and click the link
3.

Actual Results:  
nothing

Expected Results:  
it should have opened the local pdf file
