During initializing a plugin from a local file, for example file:///, in the Internet Explorer browser, this error may occur:
This could be due to the unavailability of localStorage.
This problem can be solved in two ways.
The first way is to open the page through the IDE (for example IntelliJ IDEA)
Open a file in a web browser
To open a file that is intended to be rendered by a web browser (HTML, XML, JSP, and so on), do one of the following:
- Press Alt+F2.
- Right-click a file and select Open in Browser.
- From the main menu, select View | Open in Browser.
- Use the browser popup in the top right part of the editor window. Click the browser button to open the web server file URL, or Shift+Click it to open the local file URL
The Open in Browser action is not available for other file types. However, you can still execute it using Find Action Ctrl+Shift+A.
The second way is running a Local HTTP server (for example, Nginx or http-server).
Then you can open files not through file:///, but as http://localhost/...
