Since it is no longer used (superceded by WebIDL and XPCOM extensions now deprecated), we can remove this XPCOM interface.
Is there any replacement of |nsCOMPtr<nsIDOMHTMLAnchorElement> anchor = do_QueryInterface(aNode);|?
Well, depends on the context, but for this bug I'm mostly doing:

nsCOMPtr<nsIContent> content = do_QueryInterface(aNode);
if (content->IsHTMLElement(nsGkAtoms::anchor)) ...

Then just using nsIContent->HasAttr/GetAttr after that for cleanup.

I'll upload my WIP patch here in a sec, still gotta fill out some missing XPCOM fields but it's mostly done.
Ok, WIP patch posted. This won't build because it's still missing quite a few fields we were picking up from XPCOM interface implementation. I'll take care of those on Monday.

Bug 1389650 - Change nsIDOMHTMLAnchorElement instanceof checks to getClassName;

I don't think this rewrite is appropreate because HTMLAnchorElement::GetHref is treated differently from GetAttr. (Making the URI absolute, for example.)

We should have something like nsIContent::AsAnchorElement.

Oh, yeah, you're totally correct on that, thanks for pointing that out! I made that change before making the edits to HTMLAnchorElement.h/cpp, so I wasn't aware of that when I did it. After the IsHTMLElement check passes, I think we should just be able to do a static_cast<HTMLAnchorElement*>(content) and can get GetHref from that.

I went with the ChromeUtils.getClassName solution for the chrome js 'cause it was the last viable thing posted in the dev-platform thread. If we're going to go ahead with .hasClassName, I'm fine to file a followup, and possible do the .hasClassName work myself since we're gonna see a lot of this kind of conversion in the XPCOM DOM element removal work.

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/167774/#review187998

Hmm.  I guess ChromeUtils.getClassName already exists, so we're just reusing it...

I would really prefer it if this were split up into three patches:

1. The JS/JSM changes to stop using Ci.nsIDOMHTMLAnchorElement and replace with ChromeUtils.getClassName.
2. The FromContent infrastructure changes.
3. The rest of the changes.

That would not only make this simpler to review/understand, but also make bisection much simpler if there is any fallout (which I don't expect to happen, true).

HTMLAnchorElement is always `<a>` as far as I can tell.  `<anchor>` gives you HTMLUnknownElement.

I'm going to mark this r- for the moment, because the basic premise here is wrong...

Ick.  This is OK for now, but maybe file a followup to make `mAssociatedLink` an `Element*`?  ChromeContextMenuListener::HandleEvent should be able to provide one pretty easily here.  And then we wouldn't have to worry about whether it QIs to nsIContent (which not all  nsIDOMNodes do, but all current values of mAssociatedLink do, I think).

::: docshell/base/nsContextMenuInfo.cpp:71

This is not equivalent to the old code.  The old code used to only do this if there was an "href" attribute on the element...  That check needs to stay.

::: docshell/base/nsContextMenuInfo.cpp:94
(Diff revision 1)

Again, this lost the check for an href attr existing...

This will include `<area>` elements.  That's not what the old code did; why do we want to do that?

The old code didn't do this check, right?  I guess it's theoretically a performance optimization, maybe, but do we really need it?

Are we guaranteed that draggedNode is not null?  That's not obvious to me.

Probably safer to use FromContentOrNull, which would match the old code.

And here.  Note that you could probably move the FromContentOrNull calls into the if condition itself to avoid this useless-seeming set of "anchor" all the way up here.

This is wrong, and I expect it to crash if actual elements with localname "anchor" end up in the system.

This comment is outdated (even before your patch) and should go away.  There's no more XPCOM here.

This is getting to be a pattern.  Why all these changes away from DOMString?

This is crying out for a NS_IMPL_ISUPPORTS_CYCLE_COLLECTION_INHERITED0 that just takes the parent class name.  Followup for that, please?

And as long as we're there, in that followup you could switch HTMLOutputElement to NS_IMPL_QUERY_INTERFACE_CYCLE_COLLECTION_INHERITED, I think.

This doesn't seem right.  The old code used to silently return empty string on OOM, while the new code will crash.  Please either restore the old behavior or have it propagate the OOM out (mark .text as [Throws] in the webidl).

How do you know aNode is AsContent()?  This probably needs to check IsContent() or something.  In particular, aNode->AsContent() does NOT return null in the non-nsIContent case.  Instead it will just unsafely cast, after asserting IsContent().

Could just use FromContentOrNull, since that's hat you want anyway.

but either way.

I reverted the nsContextMenuInfo code to the original logic, and tried to just change types and checks. As most of this code is from the CVS days, I did need to switch out nsIDOM* for nsIContent in order to get us the FromContent calls (would rather that than static_casts if I can), and also used that to clean up the element type checks. Hoping I'm not out of bounds on that assumption, but if so let me know and I'll continue fixing.

Boris and Kyle, I'm trying to fix the bustage in bug 1403516, but when I include
mozilla/dom/HTMLAnchorElement.h
I get:

So there appears to be something wrong in the M-C setup. Is this not "exported"?

I've just removed use of nsIDOMHTMLImageElement in our C++ code, bug 1404734. There are some remnants in the SeaMonkey editor code as per bug 1403516 comment #31, but we'll take care of that.

Let us know before you remove nsIDOMNode ;-)
Oh, actually, I did file it, with instructions on what needed to be fixed:
