#1837 closed defect (fixed)

dojo.back doesn't work if you set document.domain

When using document.domain for pages, dojo does not function correctly or returns errors. For instance, when using the back button fix an Error object is alerted when my page loads. This alert goes away if i do not include dojo.js at all or if i comment out djConfig. These errors occurred under IE6 and IE7.

<script type='text/javascript'>

document.domain = '';
djConfig = {
  preventBackButtonFix : false
<script type='text/javascript' src='/js/dojo/dojo.js'></script>

This error can be fixed by simply defining the same document.domain in iframe_history.html (which the back button fix uses).

There should be some variable in djConfig allowing the document.domain to be set for all documents that need it. I haven't checked, but I assume this also affects a lot of other embedded .html files or dynamically created documents when using dojo. For now the only sure fix would be to add in a document.domain for any embedded iframes that use it.

note that the page actually must be served somewhere on "" for the fix in [9877] to work
