I tried creating a custom field and a custom link on standard object with the link: file:///Users/sk/downloads/index.html It doesn't open a new page at all. Even if I try open as a new tab/new window, it shows me a blank page with url about:blank. The same happens with a custom link.

Has any one faced the same issue & found a solution for it?

  • How did you create the link? It looks like a file on your own computer, that can't work. Commented May 14, 2013 at 6:25
