Querying Interface nsIAccessibleRetrieval on;1 fails with error 80004002 (no such interface)

The same code works fine with Firefox 2.x

Environment: Windows XP

In process extension DLL (C++) call:
nsCOMPtr<nsIAccessibleRetrieval> refp =  do_GetService(";1", &rv);

We compile & link with gecko 1.8 SDK (nspr4.lib xpcomglue_s.lib xpcom.lib  comsupp.lib) 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an Add-on DLL as per description above
2. call the function
Actual Results:  
Fails with error 80004002 (no such interface)

Expected Results:  
A vaild Interface pointer

I see you are building your own.

Does the DOM Inspector work for you? It is working in the nightly builds, and that code depends on accessibleRetrieval, e.g.:
 56 const kAccessibleRetrievalCID = ";1";
 58 const nsIAccessibleRetrieval = Components.interfaces.nsIAccessibleRetrieval;

So this appears to be something different in your code or build.
Do you compile with gecko 1.8 but test with 1.9?
DOM inspector works fine.

Yes we do compile & link with 1.8. Compiling should not be a factor as the header file did not change. Linking may be an issue if there is a change specific to this call.
Are you aware of such a difference?

I will try to compile & link with 1.9 and report back.

I now compiled & linked with the latest 1.9 (

I linked with xpcomglue_s.lib xpcom.lib nspr4.lib and comsupp.lib  

The problem is still the same with Gran Paradiso 8. Error 80004002

The new compile is NOT Firefox 2 compatible as it generates stack corruption errors. But, the call to get nsIAccessibleRetrieval succeeds with Firefox 2 and this new link.

The fact that DOM Inspector works OK, may point to an issue with the glue libraries (since DOM inspector uses scripting components).

Can you put small testcase I can try?
No longer blocks: fox3access
I have a test case ready. How do I post it?
Please install this folder under the extensions folder of the current profile and start Gran Paradiso and watch for error messages.
The attached extension dll was compiled and linked with sdk provided in  last modified on 10/24/2007

Linked to xpcomglue_s.lib xpcom.lib nspr4.lib

The code that generates the error message is invoked by method Init() which is called from foxtest.js. A similar test (jsShow) is run if you click on the foxtest button on the Addon's toolbar.

The test code is:

NS_IMETHODIMP foxtest::Init(nsIWebProgress* pProgress)
alert(_T("Init Called, getting nsIAccessibleRetrieval interface"));

nsresult rv; 
nsCOMPtr<nsIAccessibleRetrieval> spAr =  do_GetService(";1", &rv);
	alert(_T("no accessible interface"));
	alert(_T("accessible interface"));
return NS_OK;

Please see attachments that can be used to recreate the bug.
Aaron, why did you remove the "Blocks 396346" from this bug?
Because I don't currently consider it as high priority as some of our other issues.
Tested with headers of Beta2Pre and Firefox 3.0b1. The bug is fixed.
