Permission denied error on getting window.location .href property

3 New Member
Permission denied exception is fired in IE6 on line(9) during the following
actions .

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. (1)<html>
  2. (2)<head>
  3. (3)    <title>Simple :: documentDomain :: Cars</title>
  4. (4)</head>
  5. (5)<body>
  6. (6)    <script>
  7. (7)        var fake = window.location;
  8. (8)        document.domain = "localhost";
  9. (9)        var href = window.location.href;
  10. (10)    </script>
  11. (11)</body>
  12. (12)</html>
Page is accessed on localhost.

a. If line (7) or (8) is omitted, no exception occurs.
b. If page is hosted on production with document domain name equal to
something.com, all works well.
c. In IE7 all is working fine.

Is it IE6 bug?
Is it possible to prevent exception for accessing all window.location .href properties after document.domain was set?

Possibly a bug. However, there's no need for document.domain here. See Same_origin_pol icy_for_JavaScr ipt.

Morning All, I have some code for a website which uses 'window.open' to simulate modal dialog boxes. I use the window.closed property to decide if the window object exists at various points. This has been fine until last week when I started getting javascript 'Permission Denied' errors when I try to access this property. I suspect that a windows update has caused this somehow, as this code has not changed for a very long time. Can...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
