This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
1. A document with an anchor tag in it. This document contains a reference to an external js file. There are no js functions built into the document.
2. When the link is clicked, a js function is called to create a new window, keeping a handle to it in a global reference. The click action also fires off an Ajax request.
3. The function that receives the Ajax response adds a FORM to the document in the second window, targeting the response to itself (the second window). (Creating a new window in advance of the Ajax request/reponse is done to avoid a popup blocker.)
Both windows/pages are on the same domain. No JS functions exist in the window opened in step #2 above.
"uncaught exception: Permission denied to get property Window.timerId"
Firefox does not provide a statement # for the error, and I've been unable to catch it with a try/catch block.
My global variable for the second window is defined like this:
Smattered throughout a few different functions in the external js file are the following various references to the "ssoWindow" object:
One other clue: the only time the error shows up is when the process flows through using a GET -- which hints that it might be related to the following statement (but I don't think I could trap the error there):
If you know what might be causing this problem, please let me know. Thanks.
