#476 closed defect (fixed)

localhost not viewable in offline mode

Reported by: camerons Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: blocker Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: 2.0


When the network is disconnected, the http://localhost url is not found in firefox. In particular http://localhost:5000 doesn't find the mapfish application.

To reproduce the problem:

  • Turn networking off in a VM (usually bottom right icon on display), or disconnect ethernet cable if running from an iso image, and turn off wireless on the computer.
  • type http://localhost:5000 into a firefox browser. The mapfish application should come up when this problem is fixed.

=== Manual fix:

  • Type about:config as the URL into firefox. Select "I'll be careful"
  • You should see a list of config options
  • Select "browser.offline-apps.notify" to set it to false.

I was able to verify that this was fixed in arramagong 3.0alpha3 In VMWare Server console: Select: Summary -> Network Adaptor 1 -> Edit -> Disconnect

Then Opened Firefox, http://localhost It comes up with message "It works" Then Opened up MapFish, which also worked, (although it has empty tiles for a background)
