One of my users asked me to install MathJax on my server.
Reading installation instructions in
I came across the following:
... Firefox's same-origin security policy for cross-domain scripting.
Firefox's interpretation of the same-origin policy is more strict than
most other browsers, and it affects how fonts are loaded with the
font-face CSS directive. ...
There is a solution to this, however, if you manage the server ...
create a file called .htaccess that contains the following lines: ...
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"
That would suggest that this same-origin policy can be defeated by
settings on the "evil" server: the policy is not enforced, useless.
Did I misunderstand something?
(Does not really matter to me, am not planning on using that setting,
but am wondering about Firefox workings.)
