As already communicated, I would like to help with this. I will try to submit a patch after I get home later tonight (probably around 1am or so)

I did not know how to automatically generate the comment at the top, so, I manually inserted the first two lines. I hope that is okay.

I did not convert nsISupports to nsITransportSecurityInfo due to the following errors:

/home/mujtaba/firefox/mozilla-central/netwerk/protocol/wyciwyg/WyciwygChannelParent.cpp:212: error: ‘nsITransportSecurityInfo’ was not declared in this scope
/home/mujtaba/firefox/mozilla-central/netwerk/protocol/wyciwyg/WyciwygChannelParent.cpp:212: error: template argument 1 is invalid
/home/mujtaba/firefox/mozilla-central/netwerk/protocol/wyciwyg/WyciwygChannelParent.cpp:212: error: invalid type in declaration before ‘;’ token
/home/mujtaba/firefox/mozilla-central/netwerk/protocol/wyciwyg/WyciwygChannelParent.cpp:213: error: no matching function for call to ‘getter_AddRefs(int&)’
/home/mujtaba/firefox/mozilla-central/netwerk/protocol/wyciwyg/WyciwygChannelParent.cpp:216: error: invalid conversion from ‘int’ to ‘nsISupports*’
/home/mujtaba/firefox/mozilla-central/netwerk/protocol/wyciwyg/WyciwygChannelParent.cpp:216: error:   initializing argument 1 of ‘nsQueryInterface do_QueryInterface(nsISupports*)’

I have not looked through the code enough to understand how to include nsITransportSecurityInfo works, so, I left it for the proposed patch. I did implement the error though.

Let me know if I need to fix anything!

You can just include nsITransportSecurityInfo.h to get rid of that error.

That is OK, because that part of my suggestion was copy/pasted out of a bigger patch that does a bunch of nsISupports -> nsITransportSecurityInfo conversions.

This won't help, because GetSecurityInfo's parameter requires an nsISupports. nsISupports is specific enough for this patch to work anyway.

looks good to me, but I don't feel comfortable reviewing changes to most wyciwyg or e10s code. Michal or Jason certainly will.
