Fails to load iframe from https source to http page #11197

Code from test:

it('should test phantom iframe creation and receive message from iframe', function(done) {
  var ifrm = document.createElement('iframe');
  ifrm.setAttribute('src', 'https://dummy.net/channel.html');
  ifrm.style.visibility = 'hidden';
  var eventMethod = window.addEventListener ? "addEventListener" : "attachEvent";
  var eventer = window[eventMethod];
  var messageEvent = eventMethod == "attachEvent" ? "onmessage" : "message";
  eventer(messageEvent, function(e) {
  }, false);

I run this code under karma test runner with Mocha test framework using Phantomjs as a browser to test in. This code can`t load the iframe from https source. channel.html should only do window.parent.postMessage('test', '*') on load. If I change it to load from http - it works great. However with dummy (fake domain) it crashes karma completely with http..

  • Does this work in a normal browser?
  • What OS? Version?
  • What PhantomJS version? Compiled from source or download binaries?

Also, did you launch PhantomJS with the command line option: --ignore-ssl-errors=true?

It works with Chrome, Opera and Safari, and not with Firefox (all latest versions). Mac OS 10.8.2.
PhantomJS 1.9.0 - seems to be installed with brew (not compiled for sure).
No, I did not at the moment. I launch it with Karma test runner.

Is there any news on this issue ? --ignore-ssl-errors=true option doesn`t help. What do you think, is it WebKit restriction or V8 ? May be I can help to fix this ?
