If you open a web page through the HTTP protocol, you cannot link to local content with the default security settings. Moreover, links to local content should start with file:// and use forward slashes as the path delimiter. Windows-style paths are incorrect. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Links_to_local_pages_don't_work for more details.
