Revision Content

On Ubuntu Linux, you can build a bleeding-edge, development version of Firefox using the following commands.

# Get the tools
sudo apt-get build-dep firefox
sudo apt-get install mercurial libasound2-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev

# Get the source
hg clone -r default http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/
cd mozilla-central

# Configure
autoconf-2.13
mkdir objdir-ff-release
cd objdir-ff-release
../configure --enable-application=firefox

# Build
make -j4

However, this is not necessarily the best approach if you want to work on Mozilla.  See the build documentation for the full story.
