    Is plugin security different for localhost?


      I have a signed applet.  All goes well when I serve it from a remote webserver.  However, for development, I'm using a server on my laptop (MAMP on OSX).  In that case I get

          Application Blocked by Security Settings

          Name: ..

          Location: http://localhost

          Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running

      My security level is "high" and the exception list is empty.


      When I upload exactly the same html and jar files to the university server, the applet runs without problem.


      Is there something special about localhost?


      I'm using Java 7 update 55 on OSX 10.9.2 and Safari.
