Use a proper URL!

file:// defines the file protocol
file://localhost/ is the root adress on your local system
file:/// is the short form of file://localhost/
file://///server/share/ addresses the "share" of "server" in a Windows network, which is a
convenient form of file://localhost/\\server\share\, since the path from your local system
to the server's share is \\server\share

Got it? Any other mixture is a concession to user's habbits and may or may not be supported
by the URL parser of your product/app/browser.
