CRM 2011 Error displaying IFrame contents inside CRM dashboards

Lately, one of the CRM forums member was facing a problem displaying activity feeds inside IFrame and using that IFrame inside the CRM Dashboard. The dashboard saved fine but when the dashboard loaded, it was throwing the below message,

Microsoft Dynamics CRM makes extensive use of your Web browser’s client-side abilities, including ActiveX scripting. You either have one of these features turned off or your security settings are set so high that they prevent these features from being used. To enable these features, add the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server URL (http://devcrm1) to your list of Trusted Sites and try your request again.
To assign the Microsoft Dynamics CRM site to the Trusted sites security zone:
1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
2. Click the Security tab, and then click the Trusted sites zone.
3. Click Sites.
4. In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type Ex: http://devcrm1, and then click Add.

The above may not be applicable for everyone if they have already added their CRM URL to the IE trusted sites.

In this case, the created dashboard was “User Owned” and the resolution was to ensure that the “Restrict cross frame scripting” is unchecked in your respective IFrame.

To learn more about cross frame scripting and security, refer, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms533028(v=VS.85).aspx
