I am testing a website using selenium web driver. The particular site contains nested iframes. I cannot access content of Iframes, because of the Same Origin Policy. Therefore I disabled web security in chrome web driver and access those contents using following Jquery script.

$(‘#data’).find(‘iframe’).contents().find(‘html’) I achieved this in chrome by setting these features when it is initializing.

options.AddArguments("--allow-file-access-from-files"); options.AddArguments("--disable-web-security");

Now I need to do this in Firefox. I followed instructions in this URL. But that is not working.

about:config -> security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy -> false

I haven't got what I expected using above edits. Error was Permission denied to access property 'document'

There should be way to achieve this. I am using Firefox 29.0.1
