I see an error on Firefox Aurora 19 WebConsole on Linux. I also see it 
when I put the code between <script>.

I don't know if it's related with your case, but last I checked, the 
Firefox WebConsole had its own global (different from the content 
global). Something to keep in mind when playing with subtle ECMAScript 
things (like here, declaring a global function).
