This code was added in bug 717181.

Uh oh... Sorry about this...

So in the patch for bug 717181, we have tests for nested fieldsets, but not one that is added dynamically. Is that why? I'm also not sure why HTMLFieldSetElement::RemoveElement is being called from this test case at all. It seems to me that all that'd be happening here is HTMLFieldSetElement::AddElement

Mina, do we update the validity of a fieldset when another fieldset is added as its descendant?
Attached patch patch v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Right, the problem was that we were not adding mInvalidElementsCount of nested fieldsets to their parents when we were adding a fieldset as a child of another, and vice versa when removing a fieldset from a fieldset parent.

Here is a patch. Please let me know if you are not reviewing patches anymore.

Actually I think it might be a better idea to first call UpdateValidity and then update mInvalidElementsCount.

patch v2

Could you not use QO, but FromContent.
Something like 
HTMLFieldSetElement* fieldSet = HTMLFieldSetElement::FromContent(aElement);

Why mInvalidElementsCount - 1 ?

We need some tests here, and assertions too.
Could you perhaps add some debug code to 
Add/RemoveElement which go through all the relevant elements and checks their
validity state and counts and then compares to mInvalidElementsCount

I thought I had r- this.

Attached patch patch v3 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
So changes made and test added.

The reason it's mInvalidElementsCount - 1 is that the call to UpdateValidity increments/decrements the count by 1, and what we have to do here is augment the count to account for _all_ the invalid elements in the fieldset that we are adding, and not just 1.

Actually, I pushed the last patch to try and I messed up: I should check that cvElmt is not null before derefrencing it. Here is an updated patch.

Okay I ran the tests that failed in the last try push locally and they pass so I feel good about this.
