Description of problem:
I have a file called startHere.htm in my working directory, and I wanted to look at it in Seamonkey. So I ran:
$ seamonkey startHere.htm
and expected the browser to load this file. However, it took the parameter as an address and tried to load http://www.starthere.htm. I tried again with file://`pwd`/startHere.htm, and this worked. But that's pretty annoying.
Then I wanted to display a file called license_en.html in directory javacomm/en/sdk/. I thought - ok, maybe the slashes will make Seamonkey take the parameter as a path to a file. However, it tried to loaded http://www.javacomm.com/en/sdk/license_en.html.
Could Seamonkey check if the parameter is a local file and load it if it is? That's what Firefox, Konqueror and possibly other usual browsers do.
