Documents opening with wrong location displayed
Since the latest upgrade, when I click on a linked document (either in an e-mail or on a webpage) and choose to open it in Firefox, the address on the new tab is file:///C:/Users/... rather than the actual URL of the document. This is very problematic for me, I do a lot of newsletter and social media work and I frequently need to be able to share document URLs (they are often sent to me for that purpose). How can I adjust my Firefox settings so clicking on a link takes me to the actual URL? I already changed the Settings / General / Applications selections to Always Ask, and it does always ask, but when I choose "Open with Firefox" I get a file:///C:/Users/... string in the search bar rather than the URL I need.
These are not documents saved on my computer. When I click on an e-mail link to open a document in Firefox, the search bar shows a file:///C:/Users/... string. When I click links on webpages (even links I've posted myself), the document opens in a new tab with a file:///C:/Users/ prefix rather than showing the actual URL. I do a lot of work by sharing online files so this is really messing me up. Prior to the most recent Firefox upgrade, I would always get a shareable URL automatically. I just want the opening mechanism to go back to the way it was.
Would greatly appreciate any tips on how to fix this. Thanks for your help!
