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
Gaia For bugs related to the Boot2Gecko user interface and apps.  
General For bugs in Boot2Gecko that are not more specifically Gecko or Gaia (user interface) bugs.  

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
Canvas: 2D Bugs with the HTML5 <canvas> element, its XUL sibling, and related rendering contexts.  
Canvas: WebGL Bugs with the WebGL Canvas Context.  
Disability Access APIs This component relates to bugs in our support for accessibility APIs on the various platforms.  
Document Navigation Docshell acts as the glue that initiates and monitors document loading and associates documents to their view for rendering.  
DOM (and sub-components)    
     
     
     
     
     

Firefox

Mozilla's web browser.

Component Description MDN Priority
     
     
     
     

Firefox for Android

The mobile version of Firefox (previously known as "Fennec").

Component Description MDN Priority
     
     
     
     

Web Apps

Web Apps are applications that run on any device, and can be distributed through any store or directly by the developer.

Component Description MDN Priority
