Details

(Whiteboard: [rm-docshell-tree-item:hard])

In file layout/base/nsDocumentViewer.cpp

Helper method to call a closure on all docshell tree children.

Used by various methods:

  • Setting force/hint charsets.
  • Pausing painting.
  • Etc.

Change to using BrowsingContext.

Callers of each of these will need to be fixed to make sure that they deal with the fact that only in-process children will be seen. Audit of callers needs to ensure one of two conditions:

  • Caller directly handles out-of-process children.
  • Caller skips out-of-process children and the indirect callers of that code is modified to dispatch a call to the same method across the various relevant content processes.

Kannan says replacing nsIDocShellTreeItem calls should block enabling Fission in Nightly (M6).
