Tried with Ocular and Acrobat Reader and both had errors. Both were
"file not found" errors. 
"Firefox can't find the file
at / /media/Nano/Documents/tcm_files/foo.xls" 
It seems that lyx maybe 
passing an incorrect file path . When the link is clicked on in
the pdf, Acrobat Reader asks for permission before opening a linked file
and gives a file path:
Here is the file path placed in the address bar of firefox by Acrobat
"file:/// /media/Nano/Documents/tcm_files/foo.xls" 

Opening the .xls file (if it could find it) in firefox by Acrobat is no
problem firefox just opens it in Libreoffice. I tested this by opening
the .xls file from the "File" dialogue in firefox. 

Also for completeness, www links in the lyx created pdf work perfectly
as they should opening a web page in firefox.
