I started seeing this error message today too. I suspect we are seeing it now because bug 737022 has been fixed.

Here's a trivial fix. However this code depends on bug 713825 which was fixed in Mozilla 12, so we can't take this patch for Instantbird immediately.

[Approval Request Comment]
User impact if declined: harmless error message in the error console each time an IM conversation is displayed.

I'm not sure if this meets the criteria for landing on comm-aurora as a chat polish fix or not, so requesting approval just in case it does, although I don't feel strongly either way.

The transplant of this failed, did it need something extra?

That's because it had already landed:
