I'm working on our companies intranet site but i'm having a problem with authentication on mozilla, the main reason that i'm having this problem is because i'm not sure how code network share link for mozilla. Is there anyway that i can do this?

The url for a network share would be like:

file://///servername/sharename/folder/subfolder/etc

(5 slashes after "file:")  Is that what you're asking?  Provide more details if you require further assistance.

That URL should work for IE as well as Mozilla.  The key is to just use "file:///" followed by the URI (swapping "/" for "\").  I would think it would work in mac also, though I have no way to test it.

UNC rather, not URI.  Sorry.
