When I run a site from a file url, all the function calls are greyed out in the Profiler. If I serve it up, only the browser calls are greyed out.

Hi Anton, I would like to tackle this bug. I have checked out the source for mozilla-central and built a debuggable instance of firefox. I will be looking into how to debug the profiler tomorrow.
Thanks! Let me know if you have any questions. This is mostly a Cleopatra issue I suspect. We grey out all sources that start with `otherhost_` and I assume Cleopatra thinks that `file://` URLs are `otherhost_` as well. Files you'll probably need to look at: devtools.css, devtools.js, cleopatra/js/parser.js and cleopatra/js/parserWorker.js.
Cool! I will work on it this Friday and be on irc. Hope to have the fix soon.
It seems like Gabriel has abandoned this defect. If this is the case, I would gladly take it over. Thanks.
Sorry, I have been busy, but I actually have a patch for this bug that I was gonna post up after work.

So, Anton's assumptions were correct. There were no cases that caught the 'file://' protocol and it fell into 'otherhost_' which are grey out as a result of the defined style in devtools.css 

My fix was to simply catch sources with 'file://' protocol and generate a new resource for them similar to what is done with 'http://'. Debugging the profiler was a neat and lengthy experience.

When you change a reviewed patch without changing any code in it you don't need to ask for another review—you can just carry over previous r+. I'm building a fresh Nightly right now, will land this patch once it's done.

Landed in fx-team, should be merged into mozilla-central and released as Nightly within a couple of days. Thanks Gabriel!
