This is a cross-post from stackoverflow. It hasn't been moved to superuser yet. It is related to the question Can Google Chrome open local links?
I'm on an airgapped network. I've been able to install chrome from a generic repository, but getting approval for extensions may take awhile.
In the interim, is there a workaround that would at least let me copy the file URL? R-click opens the same menu as if I'd R-clicked the page instead of the link. No combination of meta keys and clicking (left, middle, right) does anything including copying something to the clipboard.
For reference, this is a linux environment.
