The above error happens when I mouseover the input box and leave it on the test page. I made this page out of a larger site I'm working on to demonstrate the error, but in this page I removed the mouseout checking to simplify the page and found that the error is actually triggered when the mouse leaves the text box and not when you enter it. Very weird 'bug'.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mouse over the outer div will trigger the mouseover
2. enter the text box with the mouse
3. leave the text box with the mouse
4. error is produced.

Actual Results:  
Everything seems to work normally as far as the site is concerned, but the following error is produced anyways...

[Exception... "'Permission denied to get property HTMLDivElement.parentNode' when calling method: [nsIDOMEventListener::handleEvent]" nsresult: "0x8057001e (NS_ERROR_XPC_JS_THREW_STRING)" location: "<unknown>" data: no]

Expected Results:  
Same results, minus the error message.

I can't think of anything else that would be relevant to this bug

Maybe related to Core bug 214340 -> Core bug 208427?

It's very possible it's related to Core bug 208427 .. Sounds like the same general outcome..

I have been getting this same error when clicking inside of a input type="text" box.  

Web searches on the error only return instances of other people having the same issue.  

The common suggestion of setting autocomplete="off" to the textbox or whole form does not work.
The page can not be found anymore, could you perhaps attach the testcase to the bug?

I apologize.. Some domain name changes.. I re-uploaded the test page to
Created attachment 232010 [details]

Thanks, I'm attaching the testcase to the bug, so it won't get lost.

I just tested this in FF3 and did not see the issue.  So it looks like it got fixed.
