This is a snippet of text from Working with windows in chrome code:

In case of <browser type="content-primary" />, you can use the content shortcut property to access the Window object of the content document. You can use content.document in a browser.xul overlay to access the web page in the selected tab in a Firefox window. For example:

//alerts selected text in the main content
// alerts the title of the document displayed in the content-primary widget

There is no shortcut for accessing document in the sidebar. You need to use





like when Accessing content documents

Works in Firefox 3.5.5.
