Loading local images in firebug using Apache

While debugging web pages in firebug, you cannot make the background images point to local files like “c:/test.jpg” as browser has security restrictions that prevent a remote website from reading local files. In such cases, you can run a local webserver like Apache and dump your images in the webserver. The you can image paths like “http://localhost/test.jpg” for backgrounds.
