Description

4 years ago
As explained in bug 979835, nsIBoxObject and all interfaces that extend it no longer exist. All instances of interfaces matching nsI*BoxObject need to be flagged.

This is a compatibility error, so the add-on shouldn't be upgraded in this case. It should also appear as a warning in regular validations.

Message:

All interfaces derived from nsIBox Object no longer exist. If you use them with QueryInterface it's likely you just need to remove the function call. See <LINK> for more information.

Affected add-on:

https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/downthemall/

Release timing:

The next Firefox release will happen on February 24th. There's time, but the sooner the better :).
