Mozilla’s Add-on Builder helps you build custom add-on for Firefox

Firefox-add-on-builderMozilla’s Add-on Builder is an online coding tool that helps you build your own extension or add-on for Firefox using common web technologies.

Building an extension for Firefox is not a big task as you believe (Read this e-book to learn about building an extension for Firefox). If you have little knowledge about JavaScript and XML, it is very easy.

The Add-on Builder from Mozilla makes it easy to write, test, and build add-ons with the help of a few extra ready-made elements. Additionally, a step-by-step guide is also there to help you.


Moreover, if you don’t have an idea to build an add-on, you can check out other add-ons for inspiration, take advantage of third-party libraries and you can use a variety of APIs in the core library to add functionality to Firefox, including widget and context-menu. [via]

    Seems like a great tool. I always wanted to build my own add-on for Firefox but I never got around doing it. Have you used the tool yourself?

    It’s hard to make our own add-on. Maybe this could help a little bit =)

      Yes, it requires a creative mind and knowledge on XML and JavaScript.
