In your home directory, make a file named Category2.html containing any 
valid html text.  The example you gave in your earlier reply will be fine.

Open "http://members.shaw.ca/peasthope/#Links"; and you will see three links 
containing "file:*Category2".  Probably the third non-blank line.
Can you open the second link, file:///~/Category2.html ?  It won't open here.
But it works if copied to the clipboard and pasted into the URI window.
Copying and pasting should not be necessary.  It should open with a mouse

The link file:Category2.html works for NO.  With NO not having a 
hierarchical file system it can not open file:///~/Category2.html but 
opens file:Category2.html, no problem.  Analogously, file:///~/Category2.html 
should work for Iceweasel. 

OK; I'm more convinced there's a fault in Iceweasel!

Thanks,              ... Peter E.
