Firefox interpretaiton of link


My website has a link in it that displays properly from my computer files and in MSIE. It is: http://www.advantagepressurepro.com/..._Printable.pdf

When I try to display this in Firefox it will not load getting this message:
The requested URL /_downloads/..\_downloads\Installation_Instructions_Printable.pdf was not found on this server.

When I look at the URL as Firefox sees it this is what I see:
http://www.advantagepressurepro.com/..._Printable.pdf

It looks like Firefox is not translating the backwards slashes from computer files into forward slashes properly. Can anyone tell me what I need to do?

It looks like a typical dummy move on my part. I had the pdf file using the backslashes from the original files instead of forward slashes for the web site. Thanks for the reply. Since converting to Firefox I have been impressed with the general support from the Linux community. I am really on the verge of dumping all that is Microsoft and going to Thunderbird, Open Office, etc. Is it as seamless as it appears. I am not a formally trained programmer.

You don't have to be a programmer to learn linux but if you really want to get to know your way around you'll have to invest some time to learn how things work the linux way.
