Your DownThemAll! and Browser Version and Language and Operating System

Firefox 51 (actually, any version), English, Linux, OpenSuSE Tumbleweed (and 42.2, at least).

DTA shows locations of the local files as ///path/to/file/or/directory, so when it is then tries to open it in a file manager, it fails. It fails, for example, in Dolphin and SMPlayer.

To my opinion, correct schema should be either file:///path/to/file/or/directory or /path/to/file/or/directory.

This issue first appeared about 4 months ago.

Expected Behavior

File or directory opens.

Actual Behavior

File manager complains about the missing file

Steps To Reproduce

Save a file, try to open it in Dolphin.
