Revision Content

Bugzilla is big. Really really big. This page:

  • lists Bugzilla "products" that are documented on MDN
  • describes the components within each product
  • indicates the priority for MDN documentation for products and components

Bugzilla changes over time as new products and components are added. MDN priorities change as well. While this page might not be actively updated in the future (unless someone takes on the task), it will likely continue to be useful.

Add-on SDK

The software development kit for building Firefox add-ons.

Component Description MDN Priority
General Miscellaneous bugs in the Add-on SDK.  
Documentation Issues with the SDK's built-in documentation, including inaccurate or misleading statements, missing or insufficient descriptions, structural problems, grammatical errors, typos, and formatting flaws.  

Boot2Gecko

Mozilla's complete operating system built on web standards.

Component Description MDN Priority
     
     
     
     

Core

Shared components used by Firefox and other Mozilla software, including handling of Web content (HTML, CSS, scripts, images, networking, etc.). (Although listed and managed as a product, this is technically a component.)

Component Description MDN Priority
     
     
     
     

Firefox

Mozilla's web browser.

Component Description MDN Priority
     
     
     
     

Firefox for Android
