When you want a add a file to a task/event, You can add an url, but the file:// protocol is not supported.Only http and https are supported for the moment. I think in earlier versions (v0.2) it was possible...
FYI: Protocol support was limited with Bug 368858 on purpose.
In Trunk builds we might consider using Toolkit method openURL() (see Bug 384139) instead.
Hardware: PC → All
Summary: Visit URL: file:// protocol is not supported → Event/Task dialog: Add Link: file:// protocol is not supported
Version: Trunk → unspecified
Lightning nightly build 6 feb 2008 seems to have rectified the problem - a file location can now be added as a link. Unfortunately, when the link is clicked, the location does NOT open.....should this be reported as a new bug, or as a continuation of this one? Web URLs open OK in the browser...
Gordon, this is exactly the issue this bug is about.
(In reply to comment #5) > Gordon, this is exactly the issue this bug is about. > Ah. The original bug I filed was that you couldn't add a file reference in the Link function AT ALL.....
Hi. I doubt this is the right place for doing this but: - What about putting a "Browse..." box inside the "Attach" box ? This would just achieve complete functionnality, wouldn't it ?
Unfortunately, its more than just adding UI for adding a file. See bug 168680

(In reply to comment #9) Couldn't this bug be left open for adding links to the files and let bug 168680 focus on attaching them ? I think this bug has way higher chances of getting into 1.0 than bug 168680 and even if enhancement of link support is desired. Scenario: I want to add link to the file located on a network share and not attach it as it is being updated constantly.
