Inherits From:nsISupports
Status:UNSTABLE - This interface is not frozen and will probably change in future releases. If you need this functionality to be stable/frozen, please contact Benjamin Smedberg.

Provides information about the XUL runtime.

This interface is implemented by the following components:


readonly PRBool inSafeMode

Whether the application was launched in safe mode.

PRBool logConsoleErrors

Whether to write console errors to a log file. If a component encounters startup errors that might prevent the app from showing proper UI, it should set this flag to "true".

readonly AUTF8String OS

A string tag identifying the current operating system. This is taken from the OS_TARGET configure variable. It will always be available.

readonly AUTF8String XPCOMABI

A string tag identifying the binary ABI of the current processor and compiler vtable. This is taken from the TARGET_XPCOM_ABI configure variable. It may not be available on all platforms, especially unusual processor or compiler combinations.

The result takes the form -, for example: x86-msvc ppc-gcc3

This value should almost always be used in combination with "OS".
