The Mozilla Developer Interface

 < Day Day Up > 

There are some developer tools that you, as a Firefox developer, will find useful. Refer to Chapter 8, "Making Extensions Work for You," and review the developer tools available as extensions.

On the Mozilla add-ons web page,, is a hyperlink labeled Developers (see Figure 14.1). The developer section at Mozilla requires that you be a registered developer. If you have not registered, you can do so easily. All you need is your name, an email address, and a password. Register, and Mozilla will send a confirmation email to your email address, which will contain a link to the confirmation page for your developer account. The entire registration process takes but a few seconds.

Figure 14.1. At the top of the Mozilla add-ons page is a link named Developers.

When you click the Developers link, you go to your own private developer web page (see Figure 14.2). At this page you can publish your extensions and themes. You can also modify your profile, which you created when you registered.

Figure 14.2. Sending your themes and extensions to the Firefox community is easy; just add them and they will appear in the proper places on the Mozilla site.
