Releasing your extension

Once you have made 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 (the official one) and The Extension Mirror. 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 file a bug in Bugzilla. See the document on update.mozilla.org on this topic.
  • There are several active people at The Extension 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 then you can announce it yourself in the Announce section.
  • If you start a thread about your extension on Extensions forum, you will probably receive some valuable feedback there.
