--- Comment #1 from Michael Catanzaro <mcatanzaro at igalia.com> ---
I guess you are using local file URIs, in which case this is expected behavior after r197858. You can access sessionStorage instead. It's unfortunate to have a compatibility break in a stable release, but this one looks unavoidable.

(If this is happening for http/https URIs, then we would need to reopen this.)

You miiight be able to access localStorage by using webkit_settings_set_allow_file_access_from_file_urls, but I haven't tested to see if that would work.
