From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020222
BuildID:    2002022214

I am running a localhost-only webserver that provides a web interface to a
documentation index.  Given a search term, it returns a list of file:// urls
corresponding to matching files.  Clicking on these links is a no-op --
absolutely nothing happens.  Users who want access to this service must
currently use another browser.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write a cgi script.
2. Connect to it at http://localhost/path/to/cgi/script
3. Try to click on a file:// url.
users who want to use this service should turn off this security check:

user_pref("security.checkloaduri", false);
