Object tag element opened with "Open File" -- Local File Security

NNTP-Posting-Host:  75.148.3.1

Hi,

I'm trying to open an html file with the object tag in it from a local
file (file://) in Firefox 3.0

The html file is the following:





                        
                        
                        alt : media/
where_to_begin.mp3




The URL looks something like:

file:///C:/Program%20Files/test.html

I basically get the quicktime icon but the file does not load.

If I launch this very same file through my localhost web server, the
mp3 file loads just fine. However, I need to be able to launch this
file on computers with no web server (so from the "Open File" option).

Does this have something to do with the new security features in
firefox 3.0? This worked just fine in firefox 2.
Is there a way I can have this media file load correclty when opening
if from the local file system?

Many thanks for any help,

Ben
