Firefox Doesn't Show LOCALHOST Files

Strange situation occurred after I've installed some firefox add-ons. I noticed that my localhost folder became inaccessible in Firefox. A blank page with no files or folders appeared. But IE7 showed localhost perfectly.

I skipped through Firefox settings and noticed that in connection section proxy settings were somehow mixed up. In the No Proxy for line a value "*.local" was written. This is incorrect it should be written localhost alone to work fine. So I deleted this line and changed it to localhost. After that everything worked perfect.

So if your Firefox browser suddently stopped showing localhost ( content and you have proxy set up check firefox settings for proxy exceptions. Tools->Options->Advanced->Network->Settings No Proxy for localhost
