File:// links in Firefox and Safari
On our intranet we have a page that generates links to server shares and puts them on a web page as a link in the following format:
file:///SERVER/FOLDER/FOLDER - clicking the link in IE opens the folder
In Firefox this does nothing - and the same in Safari
Firefox does seem to change the link to:
I know its classed as a security problem for Firefox but even when I set a security policy preference to allow it the link still does nothing - and Safari gives no help at all
Has anyone got this working, or its there an easy way around this that will work in various browsers? I want to open the folder in a window, not a specific file.
