View Full Version : Make Firefox see an image w/local address?
02-28-2005, 06:41 AM
How come I can't get an image to load if I do something like this is Firefox:
<img src='C:\Documents and Settings\Name\Desktop\Media Moguls site\aplus2.jpg'>
How do I have to code something to make Firefox recognize an image with a local address?
I don;t have any problems in IE....
Edit: Is it because of all the spaces in the file path and name?

yea the spaces in the file names is a possibility..
If I'm not mistaken you shouldn't be using backslashes for the path, instead use forward slashes like everything else.. ("/" instead of "\")
Not sure though, HTH

You could always try "%20" instead of each space.
It's usually easier for me, when I need to test locally, to open the file through Firefox and copy/paste the location just to make sure the filename is the correct path.

I'll give it a shot guys and see if your ideas work...Thanks! :thumbsup:
Hello, I get this bug to, and this is how to resolve it:
In Firefox, type in the location bar:
Type in the text field security.checkloaduri and double click to set the value to false.
Restart Firefox and load your page. If you included your pictures with file:///C:/folder/pic.jpg, it will work :)
