.url from a dropped file doesn't work as source for images
Setting the src attribute of an image element with the url property of a File object doesn't work. See the test here: http://people.mozilla.com/~prouget/bugs/fileurl.html
This worksforme if I select the file using an <input type="file">. And for the drop case, if I look at my error console I see: Security Error: Content at http://people.mozilla.com/~prouget/bugs/fileurl.html may not load data from moz-filedata:ab11527f-ad10-2a41-928f-50a676a4a381. So presumably we're not giving dropped files the principal of the page we drop into. Perhaps we should.
Summary: File.url doesn't work as source for images → File.url from a dropped file doesn't work as source for images
Thanks for finding this. We should indeed give dropped files the correct principal.

Any update here? I'd like to use File.url in my coming demos :)
Just a note to say that I get this crash every time I try to use File.url http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/fa19fe1d-241d-447a-9f2a-4a8432100913 (on last nigthlies)
I am still waiting since the post on hacks.mozila.org
Kyle, does your patch for bug 594964 fix this?

Depends on: 594964
This should be fixed now, though the syntax is no longer file.url.
