Links to shared UNC files like file://///winhost/badlink don't work if the page containing them opened from http://foohost/badfile resource. That is nothing hapened neither when clicking to the link nor when trying "Open link in new window" or tab. But if the same page is opened from local host, for example from file:///C:/temp/badfile, everything becomes alright.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a file with links like <a href="file://///winhost/badlink">badlink</a>
2. Put it somewere in http://
3. Try to open the links contained in badlink which is opened from http://
4. Save the page to local disk and open it from where
5. The bad links will become working 
Actual Results:  
Links like file://///winhost/badlink don't work when being contained in a page opened from http:// resource

Expected Results:  
They should work
