nsIDOMHTMLDocument is now gone form gecko and this causes build bustage in smile. We discussed fixing it or taking smile out and after the latest round of api and interface removals in Gecko agreed to remove it completly. Bug 1388561 removed any internal dependencies.

A New bustage today with the following error:

Bug 1090880 has removed FUEL module from Firefox. The SeaMonkey equivalent is SMILE.

Bug 1354205 will remove the last traces of FUEL from the mozilla source tree. We are still using toolkit/components/exthelper/extApplication.js in SMILE. 

I am convinced that given the latest round of removals older add-ons will no longer function anyway with or without SMILE so I think it could be removed.

The alternative is to move exthelper to suite.

nsIDOMHTMLDocument and Seamonkey are not really mentioned on MDN in any meaningful way these days, so I don't think there are really any docs for us to update.

Happy to revisit this if you don't agree. Thanks.
