I am guessing this is a FB4 debugger(?) issue. It's definitely not Firefox...because...
I noticed that I can run my application by going to the project bin folder and running the HTML file from there. When I do this, my browser shows "transferring data from xxx.xxx.xx" just fine. It works.
but when I try to debug my application, it only says "transferring data from localhost..." which is incorrect. Data is transfered from xxx.xxx.xxx server.
Does anybody know why this would happen ONLY when running or debugging in FB4?
I'll bet the Flash Builder network monitor works just like charles webdebugger.
And what it does are to setup a proxy on localhost, and set configure the proxy to your system, so all your network traffic goes over the proxy, and then the proxy actually does the network data inspection. Then it would make sense that you browser shows localhost because the data are pulled through that proxy.
^ Martin, you're a genius. Thanks for pointing that out.
I simply disabled my Network Monitor and my "localhost nightmare" went away.
I guess I didnt realize Network Monitor was routing all traffic through localhost, by default. I thought it was some code a co-worker checked in. We had some conflicts in SVN, in regards to our project file this morning. I thought maybe that project file conflict/merge had reset a debug tool setting (or something along that lines).
Thanks for helping me keep some of my sanity, I seriously appreciate your help in pointing this out....
Anytime, If I can
