Guys, thanks for your answers.

I already have contacted Google, Firefox, Dropbox via their forums or
bugtrackers, not sure it was the best way to get a fix.

Here is a list of all the issues regarding "CORS - Google Maps - Firefox 8".
I started some threads or replied and as you can see, there is no
satisfying answers and I am perseverant :)

I figured out also, that Google didn't enable CORS on his own servers. For
example, I was talking about Dropbox, but the same problem exists with
hosting files on Google Sites, or Google Code.

Anyway I understand your position, I guess Google/Firefox/Dropbox and
whoever didn't enabled CORS, will fix the issue when a certain number of
people complain... so I have to whine even more :)

I will keep this thread updated in case I get more news.
Thanks a lot
