I am using Mozilla 1.1b (Build ID: 20020721104) on Windows 2000. I recently
installed the Source Generator and User Agent Override sidebars from the
following website:

> http://mozilla-evangelism.bclary.com/sidebars/
 
The User Agent Override works really well and I have updated my prefs.js to read:
 
> user_pref("signed.applets.codebase_principal_support", true);
 
Whenever I try to use the Source Generator on any page I get the following
JavaScript Error Alert box:
 
> [Exception... "Security error" code: "1000" nsresult: "0x8053e8
> (NS_ERROR_DOM_SECURITY_ERR)" location:
> "http://mozilla-evangelism.bclary.com/sidebars/source/ Line: 223"]

I can reproduce this problem on every occasion. To reproduce, install the
Sidebar from the link above, select the correct tab on the sidebar, and 
click the "Generate Source" button. The error message will appear and no
source will be generated.
Not a Mozilla bug but somebody's custom sidebar bug 

==> INVALID ?
Its a Mozilla Evangelism Sidebar. 
The owner <bclary@netscape.com> suggested that I report it here.
This sidebar has worked fine in builds up to at least 1.0.1 and perhaps recent
1.1 builds though I am not sure of when it began failing on 1.1 builds. The
error occurs when a document.write is performed on a window that was opened via
window.open.

The sidebar does use extended privileges to access the dom of the currently
viewed window, which it then converts to a 'pseudo source view' which is what is
written out.

confirm with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020726

Attached file sidebar source
http://mozilla-evangelism.bclary.com/sidebars/source/index.html is the source of
the sidebar. To install, visit http://mozilla-evangelism.bclary.com/sidebars/.

jst, I don't think this is sidebar related. Can you take a look?
