Editor / IDE integration¶
You can use any editor or IDE to contribute to Firefox, as long as it can edit text files. However, there are some steps specific to mozilla-central that may be useful for a better development experience. This page attempts to document them.
Visual Studio Code is the recommended editor for Firefox development. Not because it is better than the other editors but because we decided to focus our energy on a single editor.
This page is a work in progress. Please enhance this page with instructions for your favourite editor.
