Unfortunately, allowing a website to load things off the local hard drive,
including images, opens up the user to a wide range of denial-of-service and
privacy attacks.  So sites are not allowed to load local content.

There is no reasonable way to disable this security feature without opening
yourself up to sites being able to have their way with your computer.
