Telerik: Unfortunately there is a new security restriction in new versions of Firefox, which is not allowing us to see the DOM tree of the cross-domain frames. The other browsers have the same restriction, but unlike Firefox they also provide a way for automation tools to work around this. For example, IE has a setting which we have access to via our browser calibration and Chrome has a command line switch allowing us to start it in proper for testing mode. It is out of our control for the time being and until Firefox releases a version with solution, we cannot workaround it.

Using Telerik Test Studio v 2014.4.1211.0

I was able to record UI activity within an IFrame normally with Chrome and IE (the elements populated in my element library).

The same activity would not record in FF (nothing inside the IFrame populated within Telerik's DOM utility).

Tests fail at IFrame steps in FF v. 34.0.5, same errors as above. I added a RefreshDOMTree() to no avail.
