... until the collector arrives ...

This "blog" is really just a scratchpad of mine. There is not much of general interest here. Most of the content is scribbled down "live" as I discover things I want to remember. I rarely go back to correct mistakes in older entries. You have been warned :)


File URLs in Firefox

In Firefox, it is possible to trust file URLs on a configured set of sites.  Add the lines like this to user.js:

user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "localfilelinks");
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.sites", "http://site1 http://site2");
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");

For some reason, it is hard to add these preferences using about:config.  You can create these keys, but they are not shown on the configuration page so you are typing blind.  They do appear in the prefs.js file, however.  More information on configurable security policy can be found at:
