UNC Paths for IE & Firefox

Hello

I am trying to put together a very basic Intranet for my colleagues at work.

Part of this includes some links to company fileshares which wouldl open up fileshare
in a new browser window. Would prefer to use UNC instead of Mapped Drives.

Problem I am experiencing at present is that ot will work okay in IE however Firefox
does nothing when link is clicked. Work colleagues use both IE & Firefox and ideally would like
to use both browsers.

Sample of code used below. (Generated from old version of Dreamweaver).

Be grateful for some advise.

Thank you

< href="file:\\Server1/files" target="_blank" alt="L:Drive - Departmental/User File Share" title="L:Drive - Departmental/User File Share">

Open in new window

For a start, your reference the the share should be a \ and not a /
< href="file:\\Server1\files" target="_blank" alt="L:Drive - Departmental/User File Share" title="L:Drive - Departmental/User File Share">

??

Sorry the reference is  "\".  

i.e. "file:\\Server1\files" .

Looks like I mistyped "/" in the alt field re image info. This is not related to the problem.
