Details

Mozilla can't get (or set) the position property of a window.  All other window
properties (bounds, index, name, etc) work, but

tell application "Mozilla"
	set winName to the name of the front window
	get the position of window winName
end tell

produces an error message can't get data of type. also occurs in OS X.
Confirmed using Mac/2002082503/9.2.2. position is in the AS dict, but doesn't work, 
generating the execution error, "Mozilla got an error: Can't make some data into the expected 
type." Reassigning to XP Apps.

MASS-CHANGE:
This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state.

If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way.
If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.
