I'm redesigning our intranet, which is not much more than pages of links to documents on a different, central, server.
I'm having a problem wherby Firefox will not open the linked document.
The links are standard <a href=""></a> flavour and not generated, the pages are html and not ASP or JS generated.
<a class="url" href="file://srv00123/UUW/Lmd/Global/Standards/PTF%20Procedures.02.doc" title="Creating a PTF">Creating a PTF</a>
The intranet is hosted on a different server from the document resource.
The intranet is running on an Apache server.
All of the links work in IE6 & 7. I have no other CSS/HTML cross-browser compatability issues and the site is CSS and XHTML 1.0 Trans valid.
When I say the links don't work in FF, I mean that nothing happends when I click the link in the browser - no 403 or 404, or even a refresh of the current page.
IE simply loads the document/spreadsheet/pdf in-window.
