Accessibility Web Mess Cleanup

Contributors are needed to update the content on the "necessary - high priority essential" pages listed at Accessibility/WebMess/724672

Some of the content on the pages listed there is obsolete, out of date, and/or contains broken links.

Interested? Contact Jane Doe

Developer Resources Cleanup

Compile a listing of where developers find Mozilla accessibility information and resources. Assess the freshness of the content. Update if necessary and possible. Consolidate if possible. Accessibility/Developer Resources

Accessibility Content on MDN

Contributors are needed to review accessibility documents at the Mozilla Developer Network and if necessary,

  • update old content
  • remove obsolete content
  • add new content

An example of new would be adding an accessibility guide with best practices for app developers.
XUL accessibility guidelines is a good document (in need of some updating) to use as a general reference

End User Resources Cleanup

Update the pages listed at Accessibility/End User Resources


To get started, you need to do these few things, in any order:

  • Make your own build of Firefox, from the source code of the development version (mozilla-central). This page explains how to do that.
  • Find a mentored bug: Use this search to find a mentored bug to work on or choose from the list below.
  • Register an account on Bugzilla.
  • Patch review: Once you have made a patch for a bug, attach it to the bug and request review for it. It's just a matter of setting 'review?' on it and selecting an appropriate reviewer.
