The URL will be added when the APIs are posted - probably by Friday, the 17th.

Thanks for the additional info, James.

Added URL
Comment 5 User image Matthew Mastracci 2002-06-05 21:48:42 PDT

In the nsIInputStream list of methods
(, "clos"
should be "close"

In nsIProfile

Thanks for the awesome ref!

I'm wondering if you could change the bgcolor #0000099 to something else because
it's exactly the same as the text selection color. In other words it's not
possible to see what you're selecting if you're over a block with that color. A
tad annoying.

Also putting the layout stuff in a style sheet would ease updating, the
documents would become smaller and less error prone blah blah..
Comment 7 User image Ellen Evans 2002-06-07 08:46:54 PDT
"clos" -> "close", will fix the size problem today.

I'm working on moving to a .css version, should be available in the next couple
of weeks.  That should make the underlying code much easier to look at.  The
disappearing text in table thing doesn't happen on my machine.  What platform
are you using?  I can certainly adjust the shade of blue if you think it would
help.  The blue itself is part of the old style recommendations.

nsIProfile font size issue fixed

Thanks for all the good feedback, everyone
Comment 9 User image Ellen Evans 2002-06-21 15:55:12 PDT
I've added the Necko interfaces, nsIFile/LocalFile, and nsIURIContentListener,
which, I think, brings the ref up to Moz 1.0 freeze levels.  If I've missed
anything, please let me know.
Comment 10 User image Ellen Evans 2002-07-28 15:06:45 PDT
Changed to .css based format.  Zip file added at bottom of opening page

Also note change in URL for TOC   
Comment 11 User image Ellen Evans 2003-05-11 13:40:53 PDT
I've added interfaces frozen between 1.0 and 1.4.
Comment 12 User image Don Malcolm 2006-04-26 00:06:47 PDT
The frozen interface at
specifies nsIIOService::offline as an attribute available for setting offline mode, and the documentation does not mention SetOffline or GetOffline.

When I attempt to use the offline attribute, I get an error message stating there is no member named 'offline'.

Eventhough SetOffLine is not documented as part of the frozon interface, it does work.

Could you please clarify if 'offline' is part of the frozen interface, and please consider updating the documentation on the frozen interface to include SetOffLine and GetOffLine.

Thank You,

I wonder if it's possible to change de print windows itself. eg: change the shape of the pages, or enter a new text, somewhere on the window.

Sheppy, should this Embedding API Reference content on be redirected to
Comment 15 User image Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2008-09-16 14:48:59 PDT
In theory, except a lot of that material doesn't look like it's migrated yet.
Comment 16 User image Timothy Madden 2010-01-11 07:27:39 PST
Could you please mention the necesary include file and library file when describing a function/interface in the embedding API ?
Comment 17 User image Timothy Madden 2010-01-13 10:28:20 PST
I have found (using XULRunner compiled from mozilla-1.9.1 sources for Firefox) that embedder-provided nsWebBrowserChrome should also implement nsIInterfaceRequestor and nsIWeakReference (other than nsIEmbeddingSiteWindow) in order used by the runtime. Could this note be added on the page ?

To follow up on this bug, archiving legacy content is now a requirement for being able to move forward with the merge.

If there is no plan to manually migrate this content in the short term, we will go ahead with moving this content off of and putting it someplace where it can decide what to do with it on your own schedule.  That may be either the site or an archive section of MDN.
Comment 19 User image Ellen Evans 2011-05-13 12:22:36 PDT
I personally have not been maintaining this doc since Netscape folded in 2003.  So I'm not sure who should have ownership of it going forward.
Comment 20 User image David Boswell 2011-05-24 11:32:35 PDT
If no one currently owns this then archiving it makes sense.  This will let people know the content is not up to date and will leave the content in a place that is available for someone to update and migrate back to an appropriate place later.  I'll archive this soon unless there are objections.
Comment 21 User image Chris More [:cmore] 2012-07-10 11:57:28 PDT
I'm closing this bug as this no longer exists on and has all been moved to www-archive.
