This is a Chrome bug. Content scripts supposed to run at document_start don't run in frames with URLs like javascript:"". Content scripts at document_end run though, leading to that exception.

Also element hiding/collapsing as well as the "Block Element" dialog doesn't work in such frames.

Approved by Sebastian on IRC.
