relative file path when embedding a link

I have a number of pages with html editor embedded into a form

If I wish to convert text into a link, I click on the link icon on the toolbar, in order to set the link type and url.

If I click the browse server button which appears on the popup form, i get a 404 not found error, as the path in the url is relative to the page.


if i am in /admin/events/eventupdate.php the path in the url is /admin/events/webassist/kfm/index.php
if i am in /admin/mail/documents.php the path in the url is /admin/mail/webassist/kfm/index.php

How do I set the browse server button to point to the absolute path, ie so it points to /webassist/kfm/index.php
