I don't know if this bug or the other bug is the place to discuss that, but basically the problem is that only native classes that are wrapper caches that preserve their wrapper can be used as weak map keys. The warning in question is at this line: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/js/src/jsweakmap.cpp#292 The actual callback function is here: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/js/xpconnect/src/XPCJSRuntime.cpp#1996 Notice that we don't actually allow all wrapper cache classes as weak map keys. This is because there are some wrapper caches that don't preserve their wrapper. Right now, we only allow nsINodes because that seemed like the most common thing people would use.
