We have a local html file which uses jFeed to get some rss feeds from the web. We are giving UniversalXPConnect privileges to this html file via prefs.js. This code was working absolutely fine upto Firefox 4.0.1, however as I upgraded to Firefox 5 the code stopped working. It is now returning empty feed object in the success call back of jFeed's getFeed method. I am unable to find any changes related to this issue in Firefox 5's change logs and here.

My guess is that Mozilla has removed support for cross domain access from non privileged code in any case i.e. even with any kind of permission given to the local html file, you can not access data from cross domain. If we want to access the cross domain data then, I think, we need to use XUL based components or applications.

Any idea/solution/workaround guys?

Yes, this is expected behaviour, the routing system will reuse parameter values from the current request if you haven't provided a new value explicitly. The best option when rendering links is to specify explicit values for all of your routing parameters.

HTTP reponse header with CORS specification.

one of the response headers could be:

Access-Control-Allow-Origin: http://foo.com
