I use to open a new window, it always generate "permission denied" javascript error. After I cancel that error box, I refresh that window, everything is good.

Do you have any solution ?

I google it. I find it related to Same origin policy, see this link.

But I am still not sure, say my url is

Then what document.domain I should set ?

Where should I set? I should set it in the main window or new window ?

That article talks about iframes. I am not sure that it's related to your problem. Have you checked your IE settings to see whether popups are allowed. I had run into a similar issue some time back and i remember, i had to do the following:

- Go to Tools-> Internet Options
- Click on Security tab
- Click on Custom level button
- In the Miscellaneous section click on "Enable" radio button under "Allow script initiated windows without size or position constraints"
- Click on OK. Click on OK again on the other window
- Open a new browser instance and access the application

This had worked in my case. Give it a try.
