Repro Steps:

This example shows a Worker, successfully accessing IndexedDB, using an external script: http://bl.ocks.org/nolanlawson/863e464f3025d7199a1f

This example shows a similar Worker, failing to access IndexedDB, using a Blob (url): http://bl.ocks.org/bemson/57dffb89ee7b28d63a29 With dev-tools, you can see how the Blob-Worker example throws an exception when attempting to open a database connection.

Expected Results:

Workers should have access to IndexedDB.

Blob-workers should share the same privileges as their host/owner context’s origin.

Actual Results:

Dev Channel specific:

No

    • I can confirm this bug still exists in 15010.1002. The error is “Unable to get property ‘open’ of undefined or null reference” indicating that self.indexedDB is undefined for blob-workers.

    • Can you confirm if the issue still exists?
