From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.0.3705) BuildID: 2002061104 I want to add a sidebar item from my local hard drive. It has the form file:///D:/htdocs/test_mozilla.html. I tried to add it with the window.sidebar.addPanel function, but it did not work. I wanted to work around this and added a valid http added to the sidebar (http://www.mozilla.org) and after that to modify in the panels.rdf file from the profile directory. I modified there and it still does not work. The page in the sidebar tries to load (the "Loading..." animation is displayed), but it fails and the sidebar item remains empty. I need this to have acces to some navigator preferences that I have no other way to access (I tried to create a test certificate and use that to sign a script but I failed). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Try to add a new item to the sidebar with a file:// protocol. 2. 3. Expected Results: I think it should display the page taken from the local hard drive.
I reproduced this Bug on Windows NT 4 SP6a German and Mozilla 1.0 German. I want to set my own sidebar for specific links etc. My own "sidebar.html" was on a mounted network drive.
