We recently have several PCs that cannot open links in both Firefox and iExplorer from an internal web page.  I have also experienced this with Windows 7 / IE 9

The target is file:///Z:/Product%20Drawings/xwz/100-200 when I mouse over it.  I have tried several security settings, approving sites, etc...  

If I paste this url into the address bar, no problem at all.  Try to activate with the link - no error or anything triggered.

Thanks in advance.

<a href="Z:/Product%20Drawings/xwz/100-200">Test Link </a>

Seems as if the IE9 users have problems and not IE8.  Anyway we need to move forward and can change file location, or access method.
