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.
