Timer/Stop Timer and Increment Counter should run in the owning thread
No description provided.
Comment on attachment 8716202 [details] [diff] [review] console1.patch Please document the new members and then request review again. It will save a lot of time in the long run...
Comment on attachment 8716739 [details] [diff] [review] console1.patch This is still missing the basic documentation for the new data members that I asked for in comment 2...

Again, which mMethodName values are these relevant to? For all of these, since they are completely unsynchronized, please document why multithreaded access to them is actually safe (e.g. that they're set on the owning thread, then we hand off the ConsoleCallData to the main thread, and never touch them on the owning thread again or something). >+++ b/dom/base/Console.h >+ // aTimerValue.
