Error: Permission denied for <http://siteurl> to get property Attr.value

Description: I have a page with an iframe in it. iframe contains a link which when clicked opens a tinybox plugin displaying the contents of another page, but since the space available to iframe is limited so in order to use the full client width of the browser what i have done is that on the loading of iframe i am binding the links inside the iframe using the code given below

            windowDocument = sender.contentDocument;
            windowDocumet = sender.contentWindow.document;
       windowDocument.domain = document.domain;
 {iframe:'sitetobeopened',boxid:'frameless',width:$(window).width() - 50,height:$(window).height() - 50,fixed:false,maskid:'bluemask',maskopacity:40,closejs:function(){closeJS()}});

The above code is run when the iframes onload event is fired.

This code runs well on IE and Google Chrome, but gives error on Mozilla.

On the contrary if i bind the iframes links using normal click event, it works fine on mozilla but then the functionality breaks on IE and google chrome

I'm really surprised that works anywhere. You're setting the iframe's document.domain from the parent?

Your code clearly isn't executable since it has typos. Can you post a complete example on
