Revision Content

Getting Started with XULRunner
A short introduction to XULRunner.
XULRunner is a Mozilla runtime package that can be used to bootstrap XUL+XPCOM applications that are as rich as Firefox and Thunderbird. It will provide mechanisms for installing, upgrading, and uninstalling these applications. XULRunner will also provide libxul, a solution which allows the embedding of Mozilla technologies in other projects and products.

Releases

XULRunner 18.0.2 has been released and can be downloaded from ftp.mozilla.org. Please read the release notes for installation, uninstallation, and other information.

Firefox 3 and later ships with a private XULRunner package, which can run any compatible XULRunner application using the -app switch.
