Hi all,

I'm happy to post my first email to the list. Hotreference is really
getting more awesome every time I log in again.

One of the neat new features is the ability of opening local files by
adding a suitable Note containing a "file:///path/to/file" url.

However, I'm using Firefox 1.5 under Linux, and nothing is happening
when I click on the local file link. I couldn't figure out how to
change my browser's configuration so that I can acess local files
through links. How do I do that on Firefox? Thanks!!
