Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Link to any file or folder with file:///// 2.Publish and view with FireFox > will act as if the link is '#' 3.View the same page from your local machine in FireFox, and links with 'file://///' work properly. Actual Results: If you perform the 3 steps aboce then you can see the problem Expected Results: Published sites should be able to handle the file:///// such as Internet Explorer already does, without having to save the entire site to your local machine for it to work.
This is a dup of bug 122022. We don't allow these links for security reasons. I think IE7 behaves similarly. > 2.Publish and view with FireFox > will act as if the link is '#' A link to "#" scrolls to the top of the page. Does Firefox really scroll to the top of the page when you click a link from http: to file:? If so, that's definitely a bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 122022 ***
