Getting Started with Firefox Add-on Development


If you've used Firefox add-ons before, you know that they're capable of some pretty impressive features — from inspecting the underlying framework of a website to displaying a scrolling 3-D wall of pictures and video. But some of the most popular add-ons just make minor changes to Firefox through easily learned languages like JavaScript, XUL, and CSS. If you have an idea for your first add-on, start out with something simple to learn the basics of how extensions are packaged and interact with Firefox.
