According to
https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Developer_Guide/Build_Instructions/Windows_Prerequisites
comm-1.9.2 + VC10 + MozillaBuild 1.5 should work, but it doesn't:
configure: error: This version of the MSVC compiler, 16.00.30319.01 , is 
unsupported.


Reproducible: Always
Confirmed.  Someone didn't update mozilla-1.9.2's configure.in the way mozilla-central's was:

The build documentation was mistaken, sorry. I don't think we'll take those patches on branches, it's not worth it.

I am assuming "not worth it" means you don't want to mess with working build files, but couldn't you include VC10 versions with a batch file to manually switch to them?
Clearing blocking? flags.  As long as the build docs are consistent with what works, I'm fine with WONTFIX.

It's more involved than that, we took patches to fix C++ compat issues, and we probably wouldn't take them on branch.
