Permission denied to access property 'nodeType' from a non-chrome context

As anyone seen this error before?

I seem to get that as of 3.0 and its happening within the yui-utilities.js file.

Not really sure how to fix as the js file is minified.

this should've been fixed as of

note: ignore the 'dom' / 'nodeType' / whatever bit -- it all stems from the same ~10-year-old Firefox < 3.5 bug.

What exact version of Ext and Adapter are you using?

ext 3.1.0 - firefox 3.5, from the thread you posted it seems that in ff3.5 this is still a problem?

Try switching to Ext's native adapter.

This is a bug in Firefox that can be read about in the above thread mystix posted. We workaround the issue in resolveTextNode in ext-base-event.js. This is still a bug in the YUI version of yui-utilities.js.
