Description

When using framesets or iFrames, IE10 produces a javascript error when one frame loads a PDF into another frame. As an additional side effect, once a PDF is loaded, a second PDF will not be able to be loaded. I set up a jsfiddle here: http://jsfiddle.net/gfsgd/6/ . As you can see in IE, you can load one of the PDFs (with no error), but when you try to load the other one, you get a javascript error, and it won't load. This is not an issue in Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.

In IE9, the jsFiddle still produces the error, but it definitely behaves differently in my webapp.

It's not a blocking javascript error, it's one that only shows up when the "Always show message for javascript errors" option is checked.

This is reproduced on IE10 for Windows 7, 64 bit.

Thank you for your feedback.

We are currently unable to reproduce this issue as described.
Tested i am not receiving the Java script error as you described. The second PDF does not open, but I do not receive error message. Please provide additional details for the repro.
What platform are you testing on? Windows 8 or Windows 7. Notice that on Windows 8 it defaults to PDF Reader APP - Both files are downloaded and opened/displayed without error message.
