> 6020 [NNNNN] WARNING: No outer window available!: file dom/base/nsGlobalWindow.cpp, line 3914

This is the #4 most verbose warning [1] during linux64 debug testing. It is widespread across tests and is emitted from 1058 tests. Given a proper error is returned we might want to just remove the warning.

FWIW, I think I've never used this particular warning as a hint where to debug some issue.
So, I think we could remove the warning.

Remove no outer window available warning

We can add this back if bz/peterv/others think this is a useful warning.
