Does FireFox 10 block access to same source local files in Ajax? Chrome does this but the workaround is --disable-web-security.

I have some Ajax in a test program that accesses a local file. This worked fine until I updated to Firefox 10. Does Firefox 10 block access to local files even if they have the same source location? Chrome has this problem but I can overcome it by launching Chrome with the "--disable-web-security" option. Is there a similar option in Firefox 10?
