I think there is no way to solve the problem.

Sample iframe:

<iframe src="javascript:new Date().getTime().toString()"></iframe>

Test Code:

$("#testButton").click(function () {

The iframe is reloaded in

  • Chrome (45376)
  • Opera 10.53
  • Safari 3.2.2 (525.28.1)
  • Firefox 3.5.9

It is not reloaded in

  • IE 8.0.6001.189004
  • IE 6.0.2900.5512_xpsp_sp3_gdr.100216-1514

A workaround is now possible in Webkit browsers if you use adoptNode() to move the iframe ( Firefox still does not have a workaround ( But, it might be nice to apply the Webkit workaround, even if that is only a partial fix.

Thanks for contributing! Unfortunately, we can't fix this until Firefox addresses the issue as well, as we're not going to implement a partial solution here. Periodically, we'll check to see if this is fixed in FF. until then, this is cantfix.

In Atlansian Jira, this bug is resolved, They use iframe in widget of dashboard, while I move widget, iframe not reload. This feature works in all browser. I don't understand how they achieve it.
