Why can't connect samba4 with firefox?(solved)

I can connect the samba4 built on my openwrt with smbclient command:

sudo smbclient -U smb //

Why can't connect it via firefox with the below url:


not an openwrt issue, but firefox (not really though)

who says smb is a supported protocol in Firefox ?

you could try file://

and again, use google before you use forum.

In file manager, type the address


file manager != firefox

possible work around https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/firefox-smb-woes-any-ideas-781219/ , again, on google, if you'd bother using it.
