Added lines 1-11:
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 [[http://kb.mozillazine.org/Links_to_local_pages_don%27t_work#Firefox_1.5.2C_SeaMonkey_1.0_and_newer|Links to local pages do not work]]

put the following into a [@user.js@] or [@prefs.js@] file

(:source lang=text:)
user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "localfilelinks");
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.sites", "http://www.foo.com");
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");
