Invalid URL when debugging locally

I am evaluating Webstorm 2.1, and using Firefox 5.0
I have problems in setting up the local run/debug environment
In the Run/Debug Configurations dialog, I create a local configuration (name Local), entering the path of a HTML file on my PC, like this E:/javascriptTest/app1/index.html, and select browser Firefox, and press OK.
This configuration is selected in the drop down box in the toolbar.

  1. The Run button is not enabled, only the Debug button (minor problem)
  2. When I press the Debug button, I get an alert saying "The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded". The HTMLpage opened has only "http:///" in the adress field.

I must have missed something. What?

the javascript debugger in WebStorm 2.1 is not compatible with Firefox 5, it work only with Firefox 3.x and 4.x. This problem will be fixed in future versions of WebStorm.

The problem should be fixed in WebStorm 2.1.1.
