We use link list to create hyperlinks to share folders. I've never had a problem accessing them from Chrome, but with some browsers like Chrome and Mozilla it does nothing. I assume it is how these browsers manage the local folder access. Is there any way around this?

Installing the Chrome extension IE Tab Multi (Enhance) did the job for me.

It has the ability to auto-detect URLs so whenever I browse to our SharePoint it emulates Internet Explorer. Finally I can open Office documents directly from Chrome.

You can install IETab for FireFox too.
