Thanks, Dieter, your comments make me realize the problem clearer.
The iframe's domain name does not conform to that of the parent window. So, it will not pass that test. As far as IE is concerned it is a third party cookie and many IE browsers clients will block it. There is no elegant solution to this. Asking the user to change the privacy settings would be an option. Storing the query string in the parent window would be another solution.
