these methods are currently spread half in nsIBrowserHistory and half in nsINavHistoryService, we should just move all of them to nsINavHistoryService.

we need also an additional patch for Metro elm project branch, that removes nsIBrowserHistory from here: http://mxr.mozilla.org/projects-central/source/elm/browser/metro/base/content/browser-scripts.js#57

As I suspected, the classInfo and PlacesUtils here makes so that most of the add-ons will keep working without changes, I found a couple that are getting a handle through globalhistory2 and while this bug won't break them, bug 838874 will regardless.

Created attachment 718803 [details] [diff] [review] Patch for check-in
Created attachment 718805 [details] [diff] [review] Patch for check-in for Metro branch
the Metro branch has been merged to central some days ago, so both patches can land in inbound
Ah I see you already fixed the usage in central, then probably we don't need the metro patch, from what I see they just merge the branch with central periodically.
Just FYI: I updated https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/XPCOM_Interface_Reference/nsINavHistoryService and https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/XPCOM_Interface_Reference/nsIBrowserHistory to reflect the interface changes.
thanks, I indeed forgot to set dev-doc-needed :(
