The file editor/libeditor/base/nsIEditorSupport.h is unnecessary.  Nothing uses the interface, and the only thing that's derived from it is editor/libeditor/base/nsEditor.h.  It should be merged into nsEditor and deleted.

(See bug 769967 comment 8.)

This shouldn't be needed, there are tons of other headers including this one.

Hmm, I think I wasn't quite clear on what I would like us to achieve in this bug.  nsIEditorSupport is a completely useless interface, and we should remove it completely.

So after taking a closer look, it turns out that nothing in mozilla-central even #includes this header, so you can just remove that header, and that would be all that needs to be done in this bug!  :-)
