I realise there are reasons for the restrictions imposed on remote XUL in Moz, Firefox and XULRunner, however, if they are to live up to their promise they need to support remote XUL in a user controllable fashion enabling Intranet and trusted sites access to chrome, local storage and system services when permitted in a user definable manner.
Single Site Browsing and Prism look like they are heading in the right direction but Prism seems to have gone underground leaving bits of itself in 3.1b2. But why have yet another extension? Why not define the settings we need and the access we want to allow at the browser? Or is that the direction of Prism or FF3.1+?
I and many others have been frustrated by remote XUL not quite working the way we’d want when sourced from a remote site. All those who agree say aye!
The security restrictions currently imposed are extremely valid and should be enforced, however, I believe we need to provide user overrides at the browser to allow trusted applications access to data and system services. The browser has access to these services so why not trusted Intranet apps and sites?
Please ladies and gentlemen can we make this work?
If not why not?
