  • Working with the Mozilla Source Code

For those of us who are programmers, there is nothing like having the source code at hand. Having buildable source lets us fix a nagging bug, add that feature we really want, and generally modify the product.

In this chapter we take the source code and go through the problems you might have building it. When we're done, you should be able to create a version of Firefox (or Thunderbird) that works.
