I have Ubuntu 7.10 host with Windows XP guest. I have copied an html page on the shared folder and open it in various browser installed on the XP guest. When I try to see it from Safari browser he show this error: You don't have permission to open this page. You don't have permission to view "".

If I copy the content of the shared folder to the Desktop of the XP guest, all works fine also with Safari, but until the files are on the shared folders Safari can't open it. With all the other browser I have tested (FF2, FF3, IE6, IE7, Opera) all works fine directly from the shared folder. I have tried also with a text file and a minimal html page.

As a note, the XP guest freeze for some seconds when trying to open the shared folder.

I'll have a look at it.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Installed Safari from a shared folder to the guest system. Then I opened a local HTML-File with graphics and scripts on a shared folder. Also tested Opera, FF2 and IE 7; all work well with the not yet released bugfixed driver.

In the soon future we'll release a new version of VirtualBox, containing the bugfixed shared folder driver.
