[Moin-user] UNC paths in moinmon

For an internal/intranet wiki, users want to include links to UNC 
directories like \\server\path or files \\server\path\setup.exe so the 
user can click the link and have the dir open in Explorer or run the 
executable. Googling, I found this page, 
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Links_to_local_pages_don't_work, which tells 
me I need to have this in my html to have Firefox open a shre <a 
href="file://///servername/share">blah</a>. I created a plain test html 
page and find that the file://///servername/share syntax works in both 
Firefox and IE. When I put [file://///servername/share blah], the 
resulting html that moinmoin produces is what I would expect <a 
href="file://///servername/share" class="file">blah</a>. That link 
_should_ work fine and does work fine in IE, but clicking on the link 
does nothing in Firefox.

Is there something else I have to do to make links in moinmoin to UNC 
paths work in both firefox and IE?
