This may be the Cross-site xhr bug, although I'm not sure. An HTML file on a server FOCUS refers to other HTML files on that same server, yet they cannot be displayed on Version 3, whereas they could on version 2.  A snippet of the HTML on the FOCUS server is included below. Clicking on "View log for Release" causes nothing to happen, although Firefox can easily open the HTML file referred to, e.g. //FOCUS\RembuildDrive\BUILD1382\Gbb\Release\1213072663.htm

<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Results of BUILD1382_ALL</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta name="author" content="Valco Data Systems">


<br /><p><font size = 5 >Results of BUILD1382_ALL</font></p><table border=1 thickness=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=3>

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open the main HTML file
2.Click on View log for Release
3.
Actual Results:  
Referred to file fails to display. Nothing happens, not even a warning.

Expected Results:  
In version 2, the referred to file would display without a problem.

I can supply complete files, but I suspect this is plenty of info.  Unfortunately, for the time being I'm going to have to go back to version 2, since we use this feature all the time.
you must use forward slashes in href attributes.
