To obtain a reference to the view manager for a document, you can QueryInterface() the nsIFrameLoader object to nsIContentViewManager. See Getting access to content views for details. Once you have the view manager, you can call getContentViewsIn() to get a list of the content views for a given portion of the browser display, then use those nsIContentView objects to manipulate the content views.

Method overview

void getContentViewsIn(in float aXPx, in float aYPx, in float aTopSize, in float aRightSize, in float aBottomSize, in float aLeftSize, [optional] out unsigned long aLength, [retval, array, size_is(aLength)] out nsIContentView aResult);

Attributes

Methods

getContentViewsIn()

Returns an array of nsIContentView objects representing all of the content views that intersect with the specified rectangle in the browser.

Note: The rectangle is specified using an anchor point, then four distances to indicate how far in each direction to expand the rectangle. This lets you, for example, take the coordinates at which the user clicked (or touched) the screen, and expand outward to create a rectangle from that point.

Pixels are in chrome device pixels and are relative to the browser element.
