The problem is not the three slashes at the start, they are correct.
It is that some of the directory separators are "." rather than "/" --
they're RISC OS format rather than URL format.

This should work:

  file:///ADFS::IYO4.$/~Mine/WFF/!WildFlowers/Flowers/Y/YellowStagshorn/YellowStagshorn.htm

Best regards,
