Randon "Access is Denied" error

I want to write to a frame in the parent window from a child window which calls a javascript function and uses the document.write but get an 'access is denied' error. This error occurs randomly. sometimes, it works fine and some times I get this error. Before writing to that frame, I do a href.location = "about:blank" and a location.replace() method on that frame (I do this becos that frame loads PDF documents generated dynamically by the server and with Adobe 7, this script doesnt had to do this workaround).

I am not sure if this is a cross-domain error. The child window contents are generated by the server using a servlet and so is it possible that when I try to access the "about.blank" page that I just replaced in the target frame might not be generated by the server?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am clueless as to what would be causing this.

Please help!


Here is the javascript code:

doing the about:blank is probably what is causing the problem. I know you can not do it in https pages. I normally have a regualr html page and call that with no tags.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
