Getting started
Do you want to help make the MDC even better? Here's how to get started.

The Mozilla Developer Center (MDC) supports the growth and development of Firefox and the web by providing comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date documentation and news about Firefox, Mozilla, and web development technologies.

If you're looking for technical help, try browsing or searching the site. Technical questions should be directed to one of the Mozilla development forums.

User questions can be asked on one of the end-user support forums.

If you'd like to help make the content on MDC better, there are several ways you can contribute. You can write new content, copyedit and correct existing material, or translate material into new languages. Check out Getting started for details.
