Page works on server but not on local disc

I have a page with an API Google Map at www.mauivacationrental.com/test.htm  I'd like to be able to edit this page on my local disc, but it won't load.   There is a script in the <HEAD> which includes this code:
src="//maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"

If I add "http:" or "https:" before the double-slash, the page will load from local disc, but the Google Map will not appear.

Editing the page is difficult without access from local disc, because I need to upload every change in order to evaluate it.

What if you open the page locally with e.g. Google Chrome and deverloper tools open?
It should give you some error which might help you further.

How are you loading it from local disk?
http://localhost

or as I suspect
file///c:/drive.

Solved by downloading the Google js and invoking the script on local drive, instead of through a URL.
