Mailing Lists/Newsgroups

Mailing lists are used extensively by the Mozilla community for many things, including:

  • questions that require more than casual effort to consider and answer
  • advocating for a particular direction of development
  • making the community aware of new projects or updates
  • inviting participation in a project

Some lists are less active than others, but they are all read by experienced Mozilla contributors. Questions asked with sincerity and ordinary politeness will get a response.

There are two ways to access the mailing lists:

Here are a few lists to get you started:
