This is similar to the ESLint built-in rule no-throw-literal. It disallows throwing Components.results code directly.

Throwing bare literals is inferior to throwing Exception objects, which provide stack information. Cr.ERRORs should be be passed as the second argument to Components.Exception() to create an Exception object with stack info, and the correct result property corresponding to the NS_ERROR that other code expects. Using a regular new Error() to wrap just turns it into a string and doesn’t set the result property, so the errors can’t be recognised.

This option can be autofixed (--fix).

performance.timing.navigationStart +

Often timing relative to the page load is adequate and that conversion may not be necessary.

Examples of incorrect code for this rule:

throw Components.results.NS_ERROR_ABORT;
throw new Error(Cr.NS_ERROR_NO_INTERFACE);

Examples of correct code for this rule:

throw Components.Exception("Not implemented", Cr.NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED);
