launch document problem

OSX 10.10.5 LC 7.1.1

launch "/Users/kclan/Documents/test.html" with "/Applications/Firefox.app"

launch "/Users/kclan/Documents/test.html" with "/Applications/Safari.app"

launch "/Users/kclan/Documents/test.html" with "/Applications/Google
Chrome.app"

All resulted in the file opening successfully in the appropriate
application with:

file:///Users/kclan/Documents/test.html

in the URL address. If I tested a file with a space in the name this was
automatically converted to %20

If I:

launch document "/Users/kclan/Documents/test.html"

with Chrome as my default browser Chrome started but the file did not open
and the URL was garbled:

file:///.file/id=324346.234545

Firefox and Safari behaved correctly.
