addStyleRule tries to add css rules to the first link element.
If this element is loaded from a different domain, js can't add new rules to it.
I've solved it by creating a new link element.
The try/catch is not required any more.

var addStyleRule = (function () {
    var added = {};
    var styleElement = document.createElement('style');
    var styleSheet = styleElement.sheet;

    return function (css) {
      if (added[css]) { return; }
      added[css] = true;
      styleSheet.insertRule(css, styleSheet.cssRules.length);

Great catch, thank you. I'll have a look at your other issue tomorrow.
