override XMLHttpRequest security policy in firefox?

im working on a page locally which requests data (via ajax) from a remote server. dummy data wont work - this page needs to grab the data off the server.
when it goes live, this file and the data will be on the same domain so the origin policy wont be an issue. however, while im developing, its becoming quite a nuisance.
is there some preference in about:config that would let me turn it off for a moment?
(after googling, i found security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy, but that only seems to allow local files to see other local files)
