This guide is based on an earlier tutorial written and printed for an Add-ons conference organized in Japan, back in June 2007. It has been updated for the Firefox 3.5 release.

The document will guide and assist add-ons developers eager to develop their own Firefox add-ons. It is targeted to all types of users, from the experienced developer who needs a little push in the right direction, to the beginner looking to get his hands dirty, but not sure where to begin.

It is an ongoing wiki-book work in progress and subject to change, as needed and revised.

Chapters include:

  • Introduction to extensions
  • Technologies used in developing extensions
  • Introduction to XUL: How to build a more intuitive UI
  • Using XPCOM: Implementing advanced processes
  • Let’s build a Firefox extension
  • Firefox extensions and XUL applications
  • Appendix: What you should know about open-source software licenses
