Get involved in the community

Help make the add-on ecosystem a better place by being a contributor, from assisting with documentation to fixing bugs and more. For more information, please see current contribution opportunities.

You can also propose changes to the API, both for additions or changes, and assistance with API development. A good place to start is to get familiar with Mozilla’s vision for the API and policies for developing the API.

If you are ready to start contributing to the API, you can onboard to the WebExtensions codebase and read our hacking guide. If you would like to create a new API, either for yourself or for uplift to Firefox, please see WebExtensions Experiments.

Please file new bugs for the WebExtensions API on Bugzilla. You can also use Bugzilla to search for existing bugs filed to the WebExtensions product.
