Hi Ricardo! Nice to have you here ;-)

For the Firefox 1.5, add the following 3 lines to your user.js file:

user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "localfilelinks");
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");

If the user.js file does not exist, just create a new one (it is located in your
firefox configuration folder where usually you can find the prefs.js file).

best regards,

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!!
