Steps to reproduce
Given an extension having a content script running at
document_start, appending an iframe to the
document.body from the content script will prevent the whole content script from being loaded the next time you reload the page, producing error
NOTE: the content script will be correctly loaded if you reload the page again, but the bug will manifest itself on the next reload every time you append an iframe.
NOTE: the bug won’t happen if the iframe src is from the same domain of the page.
NOTE: the bug won’t happen if the content script is loaded at
Steps to reproduce the issue:
- Install this minimal extension: https://github.com/Maluen/edge-content-frame-bug (also available in the attachments)
- Go to https://www.google.com/
- Open the F12 console, then reload the page, you will see that the “Loading content script” text is correctly logged.
- In the F12 console. switch to the extension content script context, then execute the following code:
var iframe = document.createElement('iframe'); iframe.src = 'https://www.microsoft.com/'; document.body.appendChild(iframe);
- Reload the page
Expected behaviour: the “Loading content script” text should be logged into the console.
Actual behaviour: no text is logged, in fact, the content script isn’t loaded at all, instead Edge will throw a 80020101 error.
