Notes From Firefox 22 to Firefox 44, this property was on the URLUtils mixin. It has been moved either on the HTMLHyperlinkElementUtils mixin, or directly on the interface.
Notes Before Firefox 53, the pathname and search HTMLHyperlinkElementUtils properties returned the wrong parts of the URL. For example, for a URL of http://z.com/x?a=true&b=false, pathname would return '/x?a=true&b=false' and search would return '', rather than '/x' and '?a=true&b=false' respectively. This has now been fixed.
