User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031216 Firebird/0.7+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031216 Firebird/0.7+ I found this problem since a bug is reported to Bugzilla-jp <http://bugzilla.mozilla.gr.jp/show_bug.cgi?id=3572>, the bug claim that nsIEditingSession interface is not available on recent builds, original reporter used the interface for his XUL extension. I had some investigation, and found the problem comes from the difference between zip build and installer build. The zip build's xpti.dat has 1011 interfaces entry, but the installer build's one has 1005 interfaces entry, thus there are 6 interfaces which became unavailable recently (because there are no Windows zip build today). All interfaces on non-installer build should be available on installer build, I think. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
installer builds also may or may not include other features depending on installed options. nsIEditingSession is part of the editor component, I'm not sure whether its needed for Midas though
Component: General → build-config
I see, I said about case all install options checked. Official windows builds (zip and installer) has the same build options according to those 'about:buildconfig'. Full featured installation should have the same functionality as the zip build, isn't it? By the way, about nsIEditingSession, it's used in <editor> XUL element's XBL file <http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/toolkit/content/widgets/editor.xml> 75 <property name="editingSession" 76 readonly="true" 77 onget="return this.webNavigation.QueryInterface(Components.interfaces.nsIInterfaceRequestor).getInterface(Components.interfaces.nsIEditingSession);"/>" for this, XUL element <editor> is available in Mozilla Firebird, but it doesn't work. This should be fixed at least.
Midas works fine in the installer build from Jan 2. So either WFM or this bug doesn't affect Midas.
Thanks to confirm that Midas works on installer builds, jesse. yes, nsIEditingSession is a part of editor component. By the way, the <editor> XUL element is part of the *XUL toolkit*, thus we can use the <editor> element in our XUL apps/extensions, I think. But the XUL element uses the nsIEditingSession interface in it, so some of the element's methods or the properties (the editingSession property, and methods or properties using it) simply don't work on windows installer builds which don't have the interface. Shouldn't XUL apps/extensions authors use the <editor> element since Mozilla Firebird is built with configure option --disable-composer? Though it works on official linux builds or Windows zip builds.
