I just spent an hour persuading Firefox that it was ok to load image files off a local file server rather than a web server.

This turns out to be altogether more complicated than it might be - because Firefox tries very hard to avoid doing what is clearly an insecure thing.  Got there in the end - now I can use the work wiki the same as all the IE users :->

In other news, the damp people finally found the source of the water - a pipe hidden behind the fake shutters on the side of the window - coming down from the upstairs flat.  Can't get at it yet, but it means that I _am_ covered by insurance, and won't have to spend thousands of pounds getting this fixed.
