For security purposes, Mozilla applications block links to local files (and directories) from remote files (eg, all internet/intranet content, including this wiki) by default.


To turn OFF this behavior (ie, enable file links) see Links to local pages do not work


put the following into a user.js or prefs.js file


user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "localfilelinks");
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.sites", "");
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");
