[Bug 15942] New: Based on my experience and from reading many questions on the Web, this API is seriously flawed. It treats cross-domain iframes the same as same-domain iframes, except that almost every operation on contentWindow is an error.

           Summary: Based on my experience and from reading many questions
                    on the Web, this API is seriously flawed. It treats
                    cross-domain iframes the same as same-domain iframes,
                    except that almost every operation on contentWindow is
                    an error.
