  • Yes it can be issue: na1.force.com != namespace.na1.force.com both are different. Browser won't allow it.

I assume that yo are using somethig like opener.location.reload(). Instead of this try to redirect the opener page to the same address:

Popup page:

        opener.location.href = '/{!$CurrentPage.parameters.openerId}';

Of course you need to notice the opener page ID in the popup URL. For that just insert that ID to the Custom Button code that opens a popup, somethid like this:

Custom button code:

newPopup = window.open("/apex/PopupPage?openerId={!Object__c.Id}", "myPopup", 
  • Thanks @mast0r actually I have created a package in my org and as per my understanding this issue is beacuse when i open the vf page on click of button, it contains the namespace in the url but not in the record url and because domain is different this is showing error.. Please guide me on this..

  • Well, i've tried my example with opener URL na9.salesforce.com and a popup URL c.na9.visual.force.com. And it works fine. Just try it. Commented Oct 8, 2013 at 9:13
  • I am doing like this var url="/apex/pagename?id="+"{!Account.Id}"; var val = window.showModalDialog(url,false,'dialogHeight:480px;');
