i never had a problem accessing this file but since i down loaded firefox it willnot let me in.  it askes for a user name and password.  no matter what i enter it rejects me and tells me i dont have authority to use this file.

with ie i can access the file but it doesn't so the results of the code.  the examples that are used by ibm show the exercise done in firefox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.type in browser http://localhost
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
your pop up to enter my user name and password

Expected Results:  
it tells me i don't have the authority ON MY OWN COMPUTER

localhost is whatever your computer is serving on port 80 which may be a secure server requiring a user name and password (or you may have been hacked).  It has nothing to do with Firefox.  I doubt any other browser can access it either.

i know for fact that i have NOT  been hacked.  i have the same user name and password for logging on and for my admin account.  fire fox still says i am not authorized.  so now what do i do.  i ONLY HAVE THIS PROBLEM IN FIREFOX. so how can you say its not you.
how about http://127.0.0.1, does that work?

(Generally you have to set up your computer to run a local server, i.e. through add/remove windows components)
