I downloaded WikiLeak's afgan diary html, which has links with the following format: "file:///afgan/type/air raid_0.htm". However I put the files in a folder "My Documents\WikiLeaks\HTMLfiles". So now the link does not work. What is wrong?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

No, that is a path to a server and likely malformed because in that case you need 5 slashes. To locate a file on the C drive you need to use file:///C:/Documents and Settings/<user>/My Documents/WikiLeaks/HTMLfiles

If links are hard coded like you wrote them then it may be a lot of work to get it working.

You can use a bookmarklet like this to fix links in Firefox and save the page if the links are working: javascript:(function() }alert(j);})(); You need to change the S and R variables to the proper file path. In the regular expression you need to escape a "/" as "\/" and a dot (.) as [.]

Easiest to do that is to open the file via File > Open File and copy the URL from the location bar. You can also drag the file in a Firefox window (tab).

As I explained previously: I downloaded WikiLeak's afgan diary html, which has links with the following format: "file:///afgan/type/air raid_0.htm". However I put the files in a folder "My Documents\WikiLeaks\HTMLfiles". So now the link does not work. Here is an example of what I mean:

Browse by Type air mission (431) counter insurgency (4) counter-insurgency (39) criminal event (480) detainee operations (1208) enemy (13) enemy action (27078) explosive hazard (23082) friendly action (13734) friendly fire (148) non-combat event (7719) other (2752) suspicious incident (208) unknown initiated action (12)

I clicked on "counter insurgency (4)" and that link did NOT work. Looking at that URL, this is the contents: "file:///afg/sort/type/counter_insurgency_0.html" Is that the correct format to get to that local file on my C drive?
