The solution? Firefox allows you to add exceptions to this rule on a site-by-site basis.
- First, shut down all instances of Firefox (don’t skip this step).
- Then, edit or create a user.js file in your profile using this guide. It varies by operating system, but on Vista 64-bit my profile was in “C:\Users\tmuth\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles“.
user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess"); user_pref("capability.policy.localfilelinks.sites", "http://apex.oracle.com"); user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "localfilelinks");
- Start Firefox.
Now you can edit the file on your local machine, then refresh the web application to reflect those changes.
Another solution for smaller functions is to use the Firebug plugin for Firefox, but it just doesn’t work well for really big functions.
