Firefox and x-frame-options:deny

I have a tool I use on my own website, for doing research, that uses frames.

When I use it with IE, on google.com sites, I get this:

"This content cannot be displayed in a frame"

I understand this has something to do with clickjacking and X- FRAME-OPTIONS: DENY.  But I don't know much more than that.  

I've downloaded firefox, I don't get that message, but the page that I am trying to access just doesn't load

Question: is thier a plugin or setting I can change so that I can get around this and access the pages in a frame?

Thanks,   Chris

Are there no errors in the javascript console in Fx?

Hi,

Not in FF, but in internet explorer there is.  Let me give you an example here:

http://www.sure-start.com/testing.html 

In my actual application, I have a third frame for writing about what I find, but pared it down to make this easier.

If you click on one of the links in the left frame, it works fine.  But then if you click on one of google's links, like the 'top stories' or 'all (number) articles', I get a blank page.

hmm, even the links below the grouping of articles that say something like  'all 27 news articles ยป'?

It's those and the other links to google that don't work for me on either ff or ie.

Thanks for taking a look.

I *think* it's related to this:

http://blog.mozilla.com/security/2010/09/08/x-frame-options 

though I'm not positive.  So I was hoping to find a plugin/addon that would allow me to turn that firefox feature 'off'.

Yet another inconsistency

I'm not sure what you mean...

I'm thinking that if there isn't a way to do this, I may just downgrade to an earlier version of firefox just for use when I am diong using this page.

yeah. Sounds like a plan. What I meant with inconsistency was that your initial view works but not the second click
