Set up Firefox options to properly access and view the InfoHub and Support Center.


When using Firefox to access Mentor HTML documents from the local file system (file://), inter-frame communication with JavaScript is disabled for security purposes. Most features of the HTML documents are still functional, including navigation and search. The following features that depend on inter-frame communication are disabled: open to PDF topic, print topic, breadcrumbs bar, resizing of text, highlighting of search results, and TOC highlighting in the left sidebar. To enable all features, you can host the documentation on an local network HTTP server.


If you are using a version of Firefox that is in the range of v4 to v22, you need to confirm your settings. Otherwise, if you are using Firefox v23 and newer, it functions with the default settings.


  1. Choose Firefox menu and then the Options menu item to set the options.
  2. For older versions, under the Content option, verify that “Enable JavaScript” is selected.
  3. Click OK.
