Find dialog won't open in Navigator for me anymore in a new tip build (works in 
Editor):

JavaScript error:
 line 0: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8
0040154 (NS_ERROR_FACTORY_NOT_REGISTERED) [nsIInterfaceRequestor.getInterface]"
 nsresult: "0x80040154 (NS_ERROR_FACTORY_NOT_REGISTERED)"  location: "JS frame :
: chrome://global/content/xulBindings.xml#browser.webBrowserFind (getter) :: ong
et :: line 0"  data: no]
Removing my component.reg fixes this.  This is the second time in the past 2 or
3 days where I've needed to remove my component.reg.  Did something change?

Converting this to a component.reg bug.  Why do we have
to keep removing this file?  looking for a new owner
in case smfr doesn't want to be on the hot seat...
Keywords: nsCatFood, regression
Summary: No longer able to open Find from Navigator → component.reg removal is needed sometimes

dbaron says to look at bug 46863

apparently, optimized builds don't run regxpcom,
so if some module {load,unload} callbacks change
you will have problems.  This was done to save startup
time.

How about doing this only for the official build case?

nsIWebBrowserFind moved to a different module, so I guess I should have changed 
its IID. I'll do that.

Other than this Find issue, I'm not the person to own a general 'need to remove 
XPCOM registry' bug.

This won't affect installed builds, where the components reg is recreated.
