I don't know if this is completely correct, but...

I have the NoScript extension installed. When I looked in about:config, I found an entry called:

noscript.allowLocalLinks

When I toggled this to "true," I was able to navigate via URLs to local and networked files.

When I looked it up, I found out that you can set this switch using the NoScript UI (Options|Advanced|Trusted).

This was working fine, but I just upgraded to v.12 and it stopped working. I keep all my bookmarks on a webserver, including local links. How can I restore local links?
