Even on firefox  you can type \\192.168.0.100 and it will show you the file listing in this folder (if you don't have any access restrictions for this folder)

what you can'T do is drag/drop, cause this function is supported by the windows explorer.

Windows Explorer and IE are integrated in such a way that you can browse internet or open shared drive directly from the Address box. Firefox doesn't have the feature for that unless there is a plugin or extension which allow you to do so.

I'm not convinced it will work, but have you tried using forward slashes?

Actually it's a security thing for Firefox.

This extension can help over ride it. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/281/

I would read the above KB article for more information.

If the asker doesn't respond, then  I would recommend a split at the very least, but I do believe the above response from eccd indicated  I helped him, "Thanks mtz1of4"
