i assume that "local" here just means any webserver that is accessed via 'localhost'

Do you know of any software I could use to debug this that is considered a locally hosted web app?

note that libreJS v0.7 is a nearly total re-write; so this issue very likely refers to only one of them

if this behavior is seen using libreJS v0.6 could you try libreJS v0.7 on a firefox derivative >= v58 wo see if the same issue still exists?

I have a local hosted web app for which I use an alias in the /etc/hosts file.

When I visit http://mywebapp (the alias does not contain a dot) librejs displays what it allowed and what it blocked for the previous website, so it does not even check "mywebapp" domain.
