silent failure if unable to contribute via PayPal from Mozilla Add-on page due to X-Frame-Options #134

I tried to contribute via PayPal to Multifox from the Mozilla Add-on
page (, but
was unable to do so (because I had 3rd party cookies disabled). OK,
that's one problem.

But the Multifox page issue is that I got just a blank screen overlay
because of PayPal X-Frame-Options on the response from PayPal --
basically, it looks like the PayPal complaint page is being loading
into some non-PayPal frame, which PayPal's X-Frame-Option forbids.

The complaint in the web console is

Load denied by X-Frame-Options: does
not permit cross-origin framing.

The Response Headers

X-Frame-Options:    SAMEORIGIN

Please consider fixing this, so that others are not presented with a
silent grey overlay if there is a problem trying to donate via PayPal.

Thanks for a great! add-on. /Jskud


Closing as it is not specific to Multifox.
