This is an example of where introducing an iframe that sources a link functions differently in Fx than some of the other browsers.

!. Click on "Go to my web page" - should open x-domain pop-up window
2. Click on "" inside the iframe - should renavigate x-domain pop-up window

(Note: the two domains used here are "" and "".)

On Chrome, the second step is caught by their pop-up blocker.
On Safari, the second step spawns the page in a new tab, but does not renavigate the pop-up window.

IE appears to function the exact same way as Fx.
