Automatic IView height not working with SPS 13 and Firefox

Hi all!

We patched out portals (NW Workplace) from SPS 9 to 13 recently and find that automatic iview height is no longer working with firefox.

With help of a javascript debugger I located the bug in pagesupport.js:

SPS 9 (call of window.frames[] with correct parameter frame name)

pageSupport._getContentWindow = function ( ivuFrameObj) {
	try
	{

		return window.frames[ivuFrameObj.name];

	}
	catch(e){return null;}
}

SPS 13 (call of window.frames[] with wrong parameter frame id)

pageSupport._getContentWindow = function ( ivuFrameObj) {

try
     {
         return window.frames[ivuFrameObj.id];

     }
     catch(e){return null;}
}

Firefox does not support window.frames[id] since it is not part of official W3C DOM.

I already opened a SAP OSS call and asked for a hotfix or patch to resolve this bug.

Regards,
