Have you tried : Select Administration -> Issues -> Fields -> Custom Fields -> Add Custom Field , select the URL field type and click Next, fill in the relevant values and after you click Finish select the screens that you want the field to appear on.

I have tried this but it only works in case of Webpage link and not the folder saved on Intranet or shared drive.

How are you publishing this "intranet folder"?  How would you normally get to it from your desktop - via a browser or file manager?  What do you type into them as the location?

I am publishing the intranet folder as file://///server\folder\path (I guess this works from IE but for some reason it doesn't work on Chrome and FF) We open desktop from file Manager..

Yes, that's a UNC link, which are regarded as potential security threats, and hence turned off in most browsers. You can try setting your browser to understand the file: protocol, but I would not recommend it.
