Get involved with making Mozilla's web sites even better. This page lists contribution opportunities that you're welcome to work on.

Most of the code on our sites is HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Django (Python) and you can read about how we do web development in the Webdev Bootcamp.

If you have questions or are unsure how you can help, just ask on the webdev forum (to sign up to the forum as a mailing list, go to lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-webdev) or IRC in #webdev or talk to @potch, @groovecoder or @r1cky on Twitter.

It's a tool used by everyone involved with Mozilla, and it's the primary way that Mozillians can find each other. There are both front-end and back-end development opportunities, and we have mentors from the team to guide you through your first contributions.

reps.mozilla.org (ReMo)

The Mozilla Reps site is where Mozilla Reps report their activities and share the events they run. There are both front-end and back-end development opportunities, and we have mentors to help you with your first contributions.


Careers is the Mozilla jobs listings system.


MLS is an open service which lets devices determine their location based on network infrastructure like WiFi access points and cell towers.


DXR is Mozilla's code search and navigation tool, aimed at making sense of large projects like Firefox. It supports full-text and regex searches as well as structural queries like "Find all the callers of this function." Behind the scenes, it uses trigram indices, the re2 library, and structural data collected by a custom compiler plugin. A great project for folks interested in parsers or search.


Most user know Plugin Check from pointing their browsers to mozilla.org/plugincheck but, there is a lot more to it than a single web page. There are some really interesting and challenging problems to help solve, from QA automation to improving the flow of reporting plugin updates and a whole bunch of JavaScript to be improved.
