Iframe no longer loading local html files

Iframe used to be able to display locally hosted html files (e.g. plotly graphs) but with a recent update all these frames are now blank.

For example this previously worked to display an interactive plotly graph (c.7mb) saved in html.
iframe
id=“inlineFrameExample”
title=“Inline Frame Example”
width=“700”
height=“550”
src=“file:///Users/Study/Desktop/Obsidian/Python/HTML/field/map_graph_field.html”>

</iframe

Now it appears as a blank 700x550 area.

Please follow and include the bug report template when submitting bug reports. Thanks.

Do you remember the version of Obsidian you were using before you updated?

It could be this:

  • Removed support for app://local URLs. These were reported as a potential vulnerability when using iframes.
