http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/file/dndfiles/ provides a demo for the file slicing API, which doesn't seem to work either on firefox nightly or on firefox 11. I'm not sure if it's a problem on the demosite or in gecko tho, so I'm reporting it here so you can investigate further. They seem to be using file.mozSlice, but I get this error in the browser (in the webconsole): -- [15:35:03.284] uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER) [nsIDOMFileReader.readAsBinaryString]" nsresult: "0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER)" location: "JS frame :: http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/file/dndfiles/ :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 1043" data: no]
It also seems to make firefox 11 crash.
FWIW, it's working with Firefox 10 which might help to find the regression if that's a regression and not a spec change.

We unprefixed slice in Bug 725289. The demo needs to be updated to handle that.

Paul, this appears to need a fix on your side.
