This page is part of the extension development documentation project.

Ask your questions in MozillaZine Forums. Also try browsing example code.

Note: development documentation is in process of being moved to Mozilla Development Center (MDC).

Once you created an extension, share it with the community!

There are a few major sites that list extensions for Mozilla products. The most popular are update.mozilla.org (aka "UMO"; the official one), The Extensions Mirror ("TEM") and Extension Room ("ER"). There is also an Extensions forum at MozillaZine, where many authors announce their extensions and ask for help.

  • To submit your extension to update.mozilla.org, you'll need to create a developer account at http://update.mozilla.org/developers/ See the document on update.mozilla.org on this topic.
  • There are several active people at The Extensions Mirror. They may find your extension themselves, especially if you post on the MozillaZine Extensions forum. However, if they miss your extension for some reason, you can announce it yourself in the Announce section.
  • If you start a thread about your extension on the Extensions forum, you will probably receive some valuable feedback there.
  • To submit your extension to extensionroom.mozdev.org, you'll need to send an e-mail requesting your addition to database@mozdev.org. See the database home page for more information.
