In my documentation web pages, I often need to provide links to locations, files and applications (.xbap) stored on the intranet.
In IE, this works fine with URLs formatted like this:
<a href="file://///company.org/ProjectA/StatsReport">Go to folder</a> <a href="file://///company.org/ProjectA/Readme.txt">Download file</a> <a href="file://///company.org/ProjectA/Dashboard.xbap">Run xbap</a>
These links all work fine under IE, but in Firefox they don't.
Does anyone know how I can format the above links to work both in IE and Firefox?
The above link actually work if I put them in a local file. They stop working only in Firefox when they are part of a html file on the network (not on my machine). There must be some kind of security setting in Firefox that prevents file:/// links from working coming from external content?
