Nmap's XSL headers ignored in Firefox

I just tried to generate a few Nmap XML files and noticed that Firefox doesn't 
seem to load them. I tried to bug the #firefox guys on Mozilla's IRC channel, 
but got no meaningful reply. Here's what I tried:


nmap localhost -oX file.xml --webxml && firefox file.xml

Gives an "unknown error" (805303f4) message. Google suggests that it's because 
Firefox doesn't read external XSL's by default.


nmap localhost -oX file.xml && firefox file.xml

Results in a blank webpage. Tried to replace "/usr/bin/../share" with 
"/usr/share" in the file, no help.


nmap localhost -oX file.xml 
sed -i 's () file:///usr/bin/../share/nmap/nmap.xsl () nmap xsl@g' file.xml
cp /usr/share/nmap/nmap.xsl .
firefox file.xml

Works, but it's ugly.
