SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, a user tries to submit a form on a Web page. In the Web page code, you use the document.domain property to change the domain of the Web page before you call the submit method. In this scenario, the user may receive the following script error message:
Access denied

CAUSE

This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • Before you call the submit method, you set the document.domain property for the Web page to a less-restrictive common domain.
  • After you call the submit method, you reset the document.domain property for the Web page to the original full domain.
When you reset the document.domain property for the Web page to the original domain, Internet Explorer does not save the original domain as the security context for the Web page. Therefore, cross-domain security is violated because the domains do not match. After Internet Explorer returns from the submit method, Internet Explorer raises the script error message.
