Revision Content

Source code for all Mozilla projects hosted in the CVS repository can be searched and viewed online using MXR. It's a hacked variant of the original Linux Cross Reference tool.

Do not download the source code by crawling MXR, download a tarball or use CVS instead.

MXR indexes multiple CVS branches and modules; the most interesting MXR root for a Mozilla contributor is the seamonkey root, which contains the latest source code for many Mozilla products and is updated frequently.

Some other MXR roots of interest are:

Mozilla Source Code Directory Structure has short description of the code living in each source directory of the tree.
