#1199 closed change (rejected)

Read the frame structure using BINDSTRING_ROOTDOC_URL

We're currently using libadblockplus's ReferrerMapping to get the rough frame hierarchy for each request.

It seems that we can do much better than that on IE9 and upwards - there's BINDSTRING_ROOTDOC_URL. The downside would be that we need to keep the referrer mapping in place to stay compatible with IE8.

Seems to me this'd be worth it. What do you think, Oleksandr?

Actually, I filed the issue before thinking. We need the full frame hierarchy for each request - knowing the rootdoc URL shouldn't be any better than knowing the referrer...

Yes. And root document of an iframe within an iframe is the parent iframe, if I remember correctly. I can double check this.
