I have a dynamic database on a server one field is a hyperlink that points to different *.ppt files located on a differnet server . when the client clicks on the hyperlink it opens fine in IE but does not open in firefox or Chrome . example of hyperlink . <a href="M:\Diagrams\Customer diagrams\somefile.ppt ">direct link</a> I have tried using "M|diagrams\Cust......... also did not work . I read somewhere on internet this could be a security issue in Chrome and Firefox Can this be fixed locally on the Client using firefox as browser? or can i fix the hyper link on the server somehow so that the all browsers work ..?

See:

Note that Firefox can't handle PowerPoint files like IE can, so you would still have to open such a file in PowerPoint or a PP viewer program.
