- 修改 firefox 的用户界面
- 给 firefox 加上新功能
如果你正在写一个新的附加组件,我可推荐你可以选择以下其中之一,在过渡到WebExtenions完成之前, 在每个方法中将会有优点和缺点. 请阅读选项来决定哪一个最适合你.
WebExtensions 是未来的Firefox插件。如果你可以使用WebExtensions API，它将是最好的选择。现在您可以开发和发布WebExtensions，但他们仍然在初期状态。
大多数的WebExtension APIs 也可以在 Firefox for Android。
我们正在准备第一个完整版本为 Firefox 48。
The Add-on SDK provides APIs for developing Firefox add-ons, and a tool for developing, testing, and packaging them.
You can run Add-on SDK extensions on Firefox for Android, too.
We encourage you to use only high-level APIs because this will make it easier to migrate to WebExtensions down the road.
Migrate an Existing Add-on
There are changes coming to Firefox in the next year that will make browsing more reliable for users, and creating add-ons easier for developers. Your add-on may require updating to maintain its compatibility, but once this is done and the transition is complete, your add-on will be more interoperable, secure, and future-proof than ever.
We've created resources, migration paths, office hours, and more, to ensure you have the support you need to get through the transition.
To get started, use the add-on compatibility checker to see if your add-on will be affected.
Addons.mozilla.org, commonly known as "AMO," is Mozilla's official site for developers to list add-ons, and for users to discover them. By uploading your add-on to AMO, you can participate in our community of users and creators, and find an audience for your add-on.
You are not required to list your add-on on AMO, but starting with Firefox 40, your code must be signed by Mozilla or users won't be able to install it.
For an overview of the process of publishing your add-on, see Signing and distributing your add-on.
Other types of add-ons
Generally, when people speak of add-ons they're referring to extensions, but there are a few other add-on types that allow users to customize Firefox. Those add-ons include:
- Lightweight themes are a simple way to provide limited customization for Firefox.
- Mobile add-ons are add-ons for Firefox for Android. Note, though, that we intend to deprecate some of the technology underlying these APIs. In the future, WebExtensions will be fully supported on Firefox for Android.
- Search engine plugins add new search engines to the browser's search bar.
- User dictionaries are add-ons that let you spell-check in different languages.
- Language packs are add-ons that let you have more languages available for the user interface of Firefox.

Use the Add-ons Discourse forum to discuss all aspects of add-on development and to get help.
Use the dev-addons list to discuss development of the add-ons ecosystem, including the development of the WebExtensions system and of AMO:
